PRESTO, a fare-free electric autonomous shuttle service, has launched in Bishop Ranch, an office park in San Ramon. PRESTO shuttles operate on a loop with four stops within Bishop Ranch. Customers can hail the autonomous vehicles (AVs) using a smartphone app or by simply waiting at any of the designated stops. Shuttles arrive at each stop every 20 to 25 minutes. The vehicles, which are staffed with an attendant, can carry up to eight passengers and have a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour. Beep is the supplier of the AVs for this pilot.
