Preparing for Autonomous Vehicles

The City of Toronto, the largest municipality in both population and number of vehicles in Canada, does not currently have an official position or policy regarding automated and autonomous vehicles (AVs); however, that does not mean the City has been sitting idly by. The Transportation Services Division has been actively monitoring AV developments, and working with various stakeholders to improve understanding of what they could mean for all Divisions within the City of Toronto. This plan intends to lay the groundwork for moving ahead, without predetermining the answers. The plan's goals and objectives are based on a strategy of being as technologically agnostic as possible to improve services in a manner that benefits today, but also facilitates improvements for tomorrow. This plan will create a framework that will prepare Transportation Services to take a leadership role in understanding the potential implications of automation, guiding policy analysis, and identifying ways to expand safe mobility for all users.
