ANN ARBOR, Mich. and WASHINGTON, DC – Today, May Mobility and the Partnership for Transportation Innovation and Opportunity (PTIO) announced that May Mobility has joined the coalition and its mission to study the impact of autonomous vehicles (AVs) on the workforce to ensure that deployment of the technology will improve quality of life and economic opportunity for all Americans.

“Planning for a workforce of the future is a critical component to May Mobility’s mission to support cities with safe, clean, and accessible autonomous shuttles. This mission starts with the transportation workers who help bring our autonomous services to the communities we serve,” said May Mobility vice president and chief of staff Rohit Bery. “We are committed to supporting PTIO and working with our coalition partners to help ensure a future where everyone benefits from autonomous mobility solutions.”

PTIO is led by its members at the American Trucking Associations, Daimler, FedEx, Ford, Lyft, Toyota Motor North America, UPS, and Waymo. The organization is working together with policymakers, industry, academia, and other interested stakeholders to identify policies and programs that ensure our entire workforce is prepared for the deployment of AVs and will ultimately benefit from this exciting technology.

“May Mobility will provide unique insights and perspectives to PTIO’s work as the company has actively provided autonomous shuttle rides to over 270,000 people across multiple cities,” said PTIO Executive Director Kathryn Branson. “We are thrilled to have another leading AV company join us in our efforts to fully understand what AVs mean for the workforce, and subsequently derive policies that prepare incumbent workers and the workforce of tomorrow for this promising innovation. We welcome May as our newest member and will value its contributions to further PTIO’s objectives.”
