Jacksonville Transportation Authority Announces Groundbreaking of Autonomous Innovation Center (AIC)

  • Date: 05/29/2024

-The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), together with the Balfour Beatty Vision 2 Reality (V2R) team, including Beep, Inc., today announces their groundbreaking launch of the Autonomous Innovation Center (AIC) at LaVilla, a vibrant hub centered around an advanced command-and-control center that will store, service, monitor and maintain the city’s electric, autonomous mobility system.


The AIC is an integral part of the upcoming Bay Street Innovation Corridor (BSIC), Phase I of the Ultimate Urban Circulator (U2C) program—a comprehensive initiative to modernize and expand transportation options in the Downtown Jacksonville area and introduce autonomous vehicles (AVs) into JTA’s transportation system. Establishing an innovative mobility network to connect a rapidly developing downtown with neighborhoods on both sides of the St. Johns River is a critical cornerstone to revitalizing the area.
