Transport authorities and mobility planning stakeholders have started discussing approaches to planning for road automation in cities and metropolitan areas. We present guiding principles for developing AV ready mobility plans, and show how scenario development, travel demand and transport modelling and participatory street redesign can be part of a planning approach at different temporal and spatial scales. We show best practices from the Rotterdam-The Hague, Boston and San Francisco Bay areas. We recommend a multi-stakeholder approach, integrating AV based travel with other options such as transit, TNC, walking and cycling and embedding transport with other fields such as energy, land use and equity.
