RTS Roboticists Develop Self-Delaying Buses

ROCHESTER, NY – Roboticists from Rochester’s Regional Transit Service (RTS) have developed a new self-delaying bus, the public transportation agency announced on Friday, and hope to conclude testing as early as August.

While traditional buses rely on a human driver to initiate delays—often in response to a traffic mishap or personal issue—the new buses are reported to be able to produce delays as long as one hour for absolutely no reason, obviating the need for costly human dependence.

This development comes at a time of increasingly heated public debate regarding the role of automation in society. When asked for their thoughts on the prospect of job loss in the public sector, RTS roboticists were on break and not responding to questions.
