Port Saint Lucie, Florida
Creating an autonomous vehicle network within a planned development in mixed-traffic and on public roads
“We are committed to making Tradition the destination for people seeking a higher quality of life,” said Dan Grosswald, Mattamy President of Southeast Florida Division. “Our partnership with Beep is just the first step by providing residents greater freedom to travel how, where and when they want.”
Beep is creating an autonomous vehicle network with Mattamy Homes, the largest privately-owned homebuilder in North America, in Southeast Florida at Tradition within the City of Port Saint Lucie. The service known as T.I.M, which stands for Tradition in Motion, consists of two routes and two shuttles operating in mixed traffic on public roads:
Indigo Line: The Landings
The Indigo line will provide residents with a direct connection to The Landings retail shopping center from the center of town called Tradition Town Square. The route has three stops with one at the Town Square and two more within The Landings.
Aqua Line: Talk in the Park
Aqua Line will provide residents at Tradition’s Manderlie community an alternative means of transportation to Tradition Town Square where there is a grocery store, restaurants, and retail. The stop within Manderlie will also provide future residents the opportunity to ride the shuttle as they explore the community after visiting the model homes.
The service operates seven days a week on Sunday 12:00pm – 6:00pm , Monday to Friday 10:00am – 2:00pm and 5:00pm – 9:00pm, Saturday 10:00am – 2:00pm and 5:00pm – 10:00pm.
The service is part of the Tradition Trail, also known as T Trail, a larger mobility network serving the community, and is the first of its kind in South Florida within a planned development. The future multi-functional mobility network spanning almost 20 miles with experiential trailheads along the way will begin at Manderlie and eventually have stops at the Cleveland Clinic Tradition Hospital, Tradition Town Square, and the future site of Veterans Memorial Park. Additionally, the trail will connect regional parks, athletic fields, and nature trails throughout the community.
“Mattamy’s vision, with the backing of the city of Port St. Lucie, will create an alternative to cars that will make the most traveled roads and community safer, eco-friendly and more enjoyable for everyone,” said Joe Moye, Beep CEO. “Residents will have greater access to safe, reliable, high-quality transportation.”
