Re: Can we have them
A driverless microbus could travel around the villages and pick up and drop passengers at a bus stop on the main road. It would be a fixed route. It would save time, driver cost, and allow a more frequent service.
To save a few minutes of driver time at £10 an hour you have to buy an extra autonomous vehicle which is parked out of use most of the time. This may not be the economic miracle you are looking for.
