Aug. 14, 209—Olli, the world's first co-created, 3D printed, self-driving shuttle developed by Local Motors, made its debut  last week in the City of Rancho Cordova at the White Rock Corporate Campus. 

As part of a three-month pilot project primarily funded by the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) through a $90,000 grant, and with funding assistance of $10,000 from the City of Rancho Cordova, Olli is available to campus employees, as well as to the general public.

"One of Olli's greatest assets is her versatility," Matt Rivett, Local Motors executive vice president, said. "Olli was designed with an eye on the future of mobility, knowing transportation needs are evolving in a variety of settings, including within the business community."

During the three-month pilot project, data will be gathered via rider surveys to understand the public's sentiment regarding self-driving shuttles. Olli will operate Aug. 7 – Nov. 7, at the White Rock Corporate Campus.
