Top 65 Transportation Trends in July

From Driverless University Shuttles to Pride-Themed Bikes

— July 30, 2017 — Autos
July 2017 transportation trends reveal the ways in which companies are seeking to convenience people's lives, as well as celebrating various social causes like this year's Pride month.

Effective and quick transportation services in areas where many university students reside is crucial, and the University of Michigan has taken steps to ease the process of getting to class for students. The university will soon be offering shuttles that transport students around campus, which can fit up to 15 passengers and are fully autonomous vehicles.

As people around the world, particularly in North America, celebrated Pride month this year, brands like Nike also got in on the action. In order to support the LGBTQ+ community, Nike offered its annual BETRUE collection which included Pride-celebrating, limited edition bikes.
