Description

Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) is part of a successful consortium, awarded funding from Innovate UK for the MultiCAV project. The MultiCAV project is a 30-month innovation project to implement a Mobility As A Service (MaaS) solution servicing passengers between Didcot Parkway Station and Milton Park. MaaS means the users will be able to book a combination of mobility modes (shuttles, taxis, bikes) from a single portal. One part of the innovation of this project is the use of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) to deliver some of these transport modes. The other members of the consortium are First Group, Zipabout, Milton Park, University of West of England (UWE) and Arrival, while the South & Vale District Councils are participating in advisory capacity. The role of OCC in MultiCAV is to facilitate the trials as the roads authority, safeguard citizen safety, provide local expertise, and critically, procure two CAVs for the duration of the project
