As Mattamy Homes looks to add more than 1,000 new homes in 2023, Tradition’s autonomous shuttle network now connects a 55-plus active adult community to the city’s main retail area with a new route, according to the company's news release.
Tradition in Motion Program
The program, called TIM (Tradition in Motion), will now feature three routes connecting additional residential communities to the center of Tradition Square and surrounding shops and restaurants.
“Tradition’s ingredients create the perfect recipe to inspire well-being with state-of-the-art amenities at an unbeatable value,” said Dan Grosswald, Mattamy President of Southeast Florida Division. “Our partnership with Beep enables us to integrate modern technology into the fabric of the community intended to let you live and connect with ease to your neighbors and everything the community has to offer without sacrificing Tradition’s charm.”
History of the TIM Program
Launched in December 2020, the TIM program has been connecting riders to Tradition Town Square, The Landings, and Manderlie with two routes using 100% electric autonomous shuttles.
The network has connected and transported more than 17,000 passengers, removed the equivalent of more than 9,500 traditional vehicle trips, and eliminated 3,500 kilograms of carbon dioxide.
With the addition of the new route, residents and visitors can now connect to Telaro, an active-adult 55-plus community.
“Mattamy’s vision to implement and integrate a variety of technologies within the Tradition community shows a commitment to innovation – reflected by the expansion of autonomous use cases that ultimately improve quality of life for its residents,” said Joe Moye, Beep CEO. “Tradition offers the right mix of residential options, entertainment, goods, and services to support the safe implementation and testing of autonomous shuttles to demonstrate what a community of the future can be.”
Future of TIM
Future expansions include an additional six miles to the TIM network with more than five miles of dedicated path for the autonomous shuttles.
The future routes will connect the Western Grove community to Tradition Square, Cadence, Seville, Emery, and the Regional Park.
The TIM network is part of Mattamy’s larger plan called the T-Trail, which will consist of miles of experiential trailheads for shuttle riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
