This is a bus, it's really good
It's driving around your neighborhood,
So get in the bus, and don't cause trouble,
It's time to experience the Alt-Tegal Shuffle
Is… is this the sex offender shuffle?
Reminds a bit of fresh prince of Bel Air.
In Alt-Tegal neighborhood, born and raised
Playing Fußball most of my days
Not a Haiku
Welcome to your New Private Club.
Can‘t wait for the first chavy mydirtyhobby couple to fuck in that thing and cum all over the seats
It is quite disgusting but I think this will happen:)
If it's public transport shouldn't it have camera's in there?
And you think that stops them?
That only makes them more horny
thanks to german privacy laws, it's hard to use that footage for anything
But what about the money shot?
I'm honestly more ok of two people fucking if they can control their jizz even a half a bit over some bum or passed out drunk pissing all over it
Made my day
found the berlin comment
they are taking passengers again? I have taken it in October 2019, was fun but very slow, lol.
But since 2020, those buses were only operated for trial runs without passengers, because social-distancing is not really possible in those tiny little buses.
bro social distancing is impossible in every kind of public transport
yes, but public transport is crucial. Those tiny buses are currently still only a joyride.
sure but i don't see the difference in an extremely crowded bus and this thing 🤷🏿♂️
\*Raumfähre - wir sprechen hier immer noch deutsch /s
Is it shuffle or shuttle?
Shuffle, you tell the bus your destination and then it shuffles them with the destination of the other passengers and drops you somewhere else
I imagined something like this
> Allow 50+ people in a bus which can only accommodate 30, shake the bus vigorously, then open the door and kick out those who are closest to the door. Now the bus is ready to depart. This happens at every bus stop.
>shuffles them with the destination of the other passengers and drops you somewhere else
This is brilliant :D
Just two tt's blowing in the wind like wheat in a field.
I see it now
That is so cool!
Is it just me or does this seems pretty inefficient transportation-wise? That's a lot of space to move 4-6 people and I doubt it can compete with bus drivers, probably doesn't even troll you with the doors.
Well, I think these mini buses are supposed to be used on routes where a regular big bus doesn't make sense economically. And since they are driverless the running cost is very low. I really like those and the thought of bringing public transportation to more remote destinations.
I'm not sure if I would feel safe in one of them, but they could also be used on regular services during the night.
Yeah, understandable. Right now these driverless mini busses drive veeeeeeerrrrry slowly. I think even if they did have an unlikely accident you'd be safe. According to this video they have a top speed of 12 km/h.
It's more the idea of getting into an unmanned bus in the middle of the night with strangers. Even as a man I feel iffy about that.
Good point, that's definitely something I haven't thought about.
> And since they are driverless the running cost is very low
There's probably a couple engineers, managers, and an overworked intern running the show behind the scenes, so not quite cheap *yet*.
Sure, that's right. But that's correct for every modern mode of transportation. Cutting out some of the middle-men (driver, workforce manager, etc.) is still a cost saver. Guaranteed availability of service once the machine is up and running.
I'd really love to see a more detailed cost break-down to be able to judge the project as a whole.
that's 4-6 times as many as the average car :)
it's just for publicity. These pilot projects rarely have any sound cost analysis behind.
It is not for publicity, it's a research project. The busses themselves are just a small part of the project itself. Check https://testfeldstadtverkehr.berlin/en/
einmal vollkotzen bei 30°C und das Ding wird zur Folterkammer
Neat! Is there any further reading on that project? This sort of public transport is exactly what the less well-connected parts of Berlin could use.
See meile is the old project from 2019. [this](https://testfeldstadtverkehr.berlin/en/) is the new website.
I believe Monaco had the same model for their public test a few years ago. Back then the thing would slam the brakes on the first sight of a pedestrian 50 meters ahead. Wasn't the most pleasant ride.
Ive seen the same kinda Bus in Charite. Works fine.
So they finally let it out if it's charité cage 😂
Nice, let's see how long It takes to get vandalized.
„BVG testet das neue selbstfahrende Raumschiff”
Imagine you had one of these that was a tiny home, and your house legitimately picked you up and dropped you off from work.
We only need 20 more years that German bureaucracy will let them use.
God please no!!
They are driving on our Charité campus in cvk. They are horribly slow and stop for about every leaf that is flying on the street.
I like the idea very much but this is not it!
This is exactly why they are driving around again. They can't get faster if they dont get tested in real conditions. Plus, the speed is a little higher than in 2019.
They test it for years now and I don't see the higher speed at all.
I mean there are systems on the market that are working way better than these. They still need to do a lot of work
Yeah, the speed is around 2 3 kmh higher so it is not noticeable. The difference between what you are saying and this project is that the other ones are in the US, where if something is not illegal, then it's allowed. In the eu they need approvals from many places.
Also, there are differences between the road conditions. It is one thing to test them in a US suburb and another in Reinickendorf, in the middle of the city, between s and u Bahnhof. They are being tested as last mile solutions. Yes, there is a lot of work to be done, but that's why this research is being done.
Autonomous busses are seen as a mid term solution because in order for them to be safe and efficient, the infrastructure (lights, 5g and intersections) needs to be upgraded.
Okay mate, thank you
I hope it is safer for bikers.
Plot twist: Home for homeless.

Actually, it’s a fake-taxi
Actually it’s TegEL
When the BVG comes up with a self driving public transportaion system before the con man Elon.
Transportation is already perfect! What are they trying to solve?
Although BVG bus drivers are rude many a times but why do we want to render them jobless? Why fix something that’s not broken?
Because it is cheaper than a driver. You just need to program it once and they’ll drive forever. It’s all about more profits.
If I remember well, Germany lacks bus drivers overall, and hires most of them from abroad.
While I myself would rather get people from abroad than robots, this direction with autonomous vehicles does not surprise me at all.
Where exactly is this?
U-Bhf Alt-Tegel <> Tegeler See
Can we participate in the trial? If so how? 😏
in india we call them Auto ....what irony even the colour scheme is the same
Charite campus has these too.
Thats going to get pissed in, graffiti’ed, and then stolen.
Very optimistic 😅
They are testing them for quite some time now. I think two years already?
