The Villages is massive. Spread over 750 miles of road and 40 square miles of land in Central Florida, the U.S. Census ranked The Villages as the fastest-growing U.S. city for a second year in a row in 2014. Its population is larger than 31 of the 67 counties in Florida.
We’re bringing a door-to-door self-driving taxi service to the The Villages. When fully operational, all 125,000 residents will have the ability to summon a self-driving car to their doorstep using the Voyage mobile app, then travel autonomously anywhere within the community.
Myra is always ready to make her rides longer to be able to experience part of her trip again. As a former project manager, she knows how to identify problems and offer solutions. Myra helps us understand how comfortable our rides have become while giving insight into the information she wants as a passenger to feel as safe as possible. Looking forward, Myra is excited to be able to travel to the recreation centers, country clubs, and town squares with ease.
Linda knows first-hand of the mobility hurdles here in The Villages. Acting as the de facto taxi driver for her friends and neighbors when they need to get to the grocery store, the doctors office, or a night at the opera, she is a champion of Voyage’s promise to improve transportation safety and accessibility. Linda is excited to help develop a future where transportation is not dependent on personal driving ability and your independence does not have to decrease with age.
