Pilot Program Reporting

Pursuant to Decisions 18-05-043 and 20-11-046 (as modified by Decision 21-05-017), on a quarterly basis, each entity participating in the AV Passenger Service pilot programs must submit a verified report containing the following data, disaggregated and anonymized, to provide information regarding each AV operating in the pilot programs:

  • Total quarterly vehicle miles traveled during passenger service by all vehicles in the entity's list of Autonomous Vehicle equipment, provided per-vehicle
  • Total quarterly vehicle miles traveled during passenger service that are served by electric vehicles or other vehicles not using an internal combustion engine, provided per‑vehicle
  • Total quarterly vehicle miles traveled during passenger service, from the vehicle's starting location when it first accepted a trip request to the pickup point for each requested trip, expressed in miles and provided per-vehicle
  • Amount of time each vehicle waits between ending one passenger trip and initiating the next passenger trip, expressed as both a daily average and a monthly total in hours or fraction of hours for each vehicle (idling or dwell time)
  • Vehicle occupancy (total number of passengers) in each vehicle for each trip
  • Total number of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) rides requested
  • Total number of WAV rides requested but unfulfilled because no WAV was available
  • Total number of WAV rides requested but unfulfilled because the vehicle operator denied the request
  • Total number of WAV rides accepted and fulfilled  

Deployment Program Reporting

Pursuant to Decision 20-11-046 (as modified by Decision 21-05-017), carriers participating in the Commission’s AV Passenger Service Deployment programs must transmit to the Commission quarterly reports of data about the operation of their vehicles. Please review Ordering Paragraphs 5(k) and 7(m) and Appendix A for a full list of the required data.

Update for July 1, 2022 reporting: In light of the limited time for Deployment participants to prepare for the upcoming July 1 reporting deadline, staff have marked some fields in the incidents and complaints reporting as optional for July 1. It remains our expectation that these data will be reported in the future, starting with the October 1, 2022 quarterly report. Deployment participants should plan to report all other quantitative data and narrative responses as set forth in D.20-11-046 (as modified by D.21-05-017) on July 1 as required. If there are other, non-optional fields that cannot be reported at this time, Deployment participants must submit a cover letter with their data reports that explains the barriers to reporting these data and discusses steps and timeline for achieving compliance. If the permitholder wishes to supplement the quarterly report with additional data, it may do so.  

The templates below (updated 6/20/2022) provide guidance on the submission of the required quantitative data:

Quarterly Deployment Data Reporting Templates

Carriers are also required to submit narrative responses, as described in D.20-11-046 (as modified by D.21-05-017) Ordering Paragraphs 5(k)(iv) and Appendix A. These should be submitted as a searchable electronic Word, PDF, or similar file alongside the numerical data.

Reporting Guidance for All Programs

The data must be provided in electronic Excel, CSV, or other searchable and sortable spreadsheet format and be provided in tables with separately labeled columns that identify the data reported in each column. The reporting periods and report submission dates for all AV programs are provided below:

Reporting Period

Report Submission Date

September 1 - November 30

January 1

December 1 - February 28 (29 in leap years)

April 1

March 1 - May 31

July 1

June 1 - August 31

October 1

 

Each report must clearly indicate the period of time (by dates) covered in each report.  The reporting period begins when the entity receives confirmation from the Consumer Protection and Enforcement Division that an AV has been successfully added to the carrier's passenger equipment list on file with the CPUC.

CPUC staff will post these reports as soon as they are complete, and will note on its website any delayed report, including the cause of the delay.
