Due to a mechanical issue with ELA’s doors, making them unable to close properly, all operations in Beaumont, AB, are currently suspended. PWT is actively working with the vehicle manufacturer to resolve the issue. All rides are postponed until the doors can be fixed.
Safety is of the utmost concern during the operation of this pilot; the pilot site will be marked with signage indicating the Autonomous Vehicle trial is active and underway. ELA will be staffed with an operator to ensure adequate support for vehicle operations.
