Mass Transit - 44

SELF-DRIVING CITY
The area that the pilot serviced
was a high traffic area for both office workers and retail business.
"Hall Office Park has nine
buildings that are all located
within a certain geographic area.
Any of the tenants within those
buildings could use the service to
get over to the Star entertainment
district. It could be a half mile to
a mile depending on which office
park they are coming from. The
Star is actually in pretty close
proximity to Hall Office Park,
but just a little too far to walk,
so this was a great pilot program
for us to deploy to connect those
complementary developments,"
said Holcomb. "Hall Office Park
offered up to 10,000 employees
for their entire park and the Star
has numerous restaurants, like for
lunch time and for people to go for
meetings, those two just comple-

mented each other to go back and
forth. Once we introduced the
residential area, clearly those residents that wanted to have access to
entertainment - or if they worked
at the Hall Office Park - that was
another complementary element."
Holcomb explained that the
TMA, which is comprised of the
city of Frisco, DCTA, Frisco Station, Blue Star, the Star Development and Hall Group, is a collaborative group.
"That collaboration is really
focused on enhancing connectivity and mobility for employers and
employees that are in that Frisco
North Platinum Corridor. By the
TMA partnering with Drive.ai,
it allowed for the launch of the
self-driving pilot program in Frisco," said Holcomb.
Since the launch of the pilot,
Drive.ai provided around 5,000

trips to both tenants in the Hall
Office Park and visitors to the area.
"It really has been an incredible partnership to be a part of,
because the driverless car partnership program was not only
a milestone for all parties involved in this partnership, but
also for the state of Texas. This
marks the first time that members of the public had access to
an on-demand, self-driving ser-
