The Jacksonville Transportation Authority is continuing its push into the world of autonomous vehicles with a new alliance.

JTA is joining forces with Florida Polytechnic University's Advanced Mobility Institute, which focuses on advancing and testing driverless transportation.

"AV technology holds great promise for the whole transportation industry, but it's very likely that public transportation will take advantage of it before the generic passenger car marketplace," said Rahul Razdan, senior director for special projects at Florida Poly, located in Lakeland.
