MULTI-MODE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING AND SCHEDULING

<p id=”p-0001″ num=”0000″>A multi-mode transportation system and method are provided in which a scheduler service (SS) generates an initial transportation schedule (TS) including a list of transport legs where transport over one or more transport legs is via an autonomous vehicle (AV) from an initial scheduled pick-up location (ISPUL) at an initial scheduled pick-up time (ISPUT). The SS monitors for any changes to the initial TS, and if any are detected, updates the initial TS based on the changes to generate a current TS that includes a currently scheduled pick-up time (CSPUT) and a currently scheduled pick-up location (CSPUL) for the transport leg. The CSPUT/CSPUL can be the same as or different than the ISPUT/ISPUL depending on whether or not there were changes to the ISPUT/ISPUL. An AV can be selected from the fleet of AVs and automatically controlled to arrive at the CSPUL to pick-up the passenger by the CSPUT.</p>
