CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Students at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi are about to see some new technology taking over the roadways on campus.

A new driverless bus system -- something currently in use at places like the University of Michigan -- will take students from one side of the campus to the other.

The new way to get around is all thanks to a partnership between the University and the  Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority.

"The first step is how we ensure that it works on campus before we take it out into Corpus Christi traffic," said Frank Pezold, dean of TAMUCC's College of Science and Engineering.

The new pilot program is expected to begin as early as this summer. If successful, the RTA hopes to bring driverless buses to downtown Corpus Christi.
