Golden Mines Rover: The Electric, Autonomous Shuttle
The Mines Rover was unveiled on August 11, 2021. This exciting new mode of transport, based in Golden, Colorado, is fully electric, autonomous, and free to the public. The Drive Electric Colorado Team was able to attend the public reveal of the Rover alongside its developers, partners, and students. We also took one of the first rides ever in the driverless shuttle.
Golden’s Mines Rover paves the way for more zero-emission transit throughout the state. AvCo plans to deploy other shuttles in Greenwood Village and Colorado Springs next. The Rover reduces transit-associated carbon emissions and improves safety and congestion. We agree with Colorado School of Mine President, Paul C. Johnson, “It’s cool and it’s the future.”
