The Villages, San Jose is an active community made up of over 4,000 residents, 15 miles of winding open road, and countless unique transportation needs. As our first partner, The Villages, San Jose has helped shape our technology, and we’re honored to be part of the community.
Best of all, by deploying in communities like The Villages, we also get to solve real problems for over 4,000 people, like Beverly Clifford. Bev was Voyage’s very first passenger, and we have been incredibly lucky to hear her inspiring story. As a blind resident of The Villages, Bev encounters daily friction with transportation.
To get around, Bev relies heavily on her husband and their car, so if her husband isn’t free, neither is Bev. With Voyage’s Voiceover-enabled iPhone app, Bev can now summon a self-driving taxi to her doorstep and travel freely in the community.
Jerry has been a resident of the Villages for over 10 years and has always dreamed of the day he can give up his golf cart to get around the community he calls home. As a previous technology board member, Jerry championed Voyage's mission and helped us understand the the community on an intimate level: everything from maps & shortcuts to rogue geese.
With early adopters like Jerry, Voyage is proud to call the Villages, San Jose deployment 0001.
