In 2021, the nation’s largest fleet of autonomous shuttles launched in Colorado.  Called the Autonomous Vehicles Colorado (AvCO), the program is the product of a partnership that includes Colorado municipal leaders, industry partners, and state regulators.  AvCO is designed to help the state meet its clean energy goals and close mobility gaps.  

[This project] helps demonstrate the shuttles’ ability to operate in different environments, reduce carbon emissions associated with transit and fill different mobility gaps across the state.”

States intent on legislating AVs would do well to follow Colorado’s example in the meantime”
