Presto Bishop Ranch Faqs

Bishop Ranch Business Park in San Ramon, CA is an ideal site for this type of pilot project. Home to over 30,000 employees working for some of the largest companies in the world, Bishop Ranch needs smart, energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly mobility solutions. Shared Autonomous Vehicles (SAVs) will help people working at and visiting Bishop Ranch to move about the large campus safely and efficiently and offers a great opportunity to test a wide variety of traveler needs within a concentrated geographical area. Data and findings from the Bishop Ranch pilot project will help Contra Costa County and the country prepare for the future of autonomous vehicle technology.

Anyone can use the PRESTO shuttle during the pilot project. You do not have to work at Bishop Ranch to use the shuttle. Riders age 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are being safely deployed throughout the U.S. and beyond. PRESTO shuttles do not have drivers, pedals, or a steering wheel but will have an on-board attendant to monitor safety. The attendants can also answer rider questions about the shuttle. The remote Beep Command Center will ensure safe operation of the vehicle at all times.

Nothing! The PRESTO shuttle is free to ride.

PRESTO shuttles travel at a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour and rides are limited to 8 people. To board a PRESTO shuttle, wait for it to stop fully, and the doors will automatically open. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

PRESTO relies on sensitive technology that can be impacted by weather conditions like rain, hail, or strong winds. To ensure passenger safety, service may be temporarily suspended during these events.
