“To trust or not to trust?”—that’s the question that is sure to be asked as individuals stand in front of an autonomous vehicle for the first time.

On this episode of Mobility: Decoding the Secret Sauce, we’ll talk to Tara Lanigan, Director of Business Development at May Mobility—a self-driving micro-transit service. Tara joins us to talk about how May Mobility engages with the communities across the country that are home to their autonomous shuttle services.

She describes how communication efforts with government officials, public service agencies, and the local community helps drive user adoption and public perception for not only May Mobility but for autonomous technology as a whole, one city at a time.
