NASHVILLE (AP) - Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Aspen Institute are leading a year-long effort with Nashville and nine other cities around the world to accelerate their efforts to prepare for the arrival of self-driving cars.

Under the Bloomberg Aspen Initiative on Cities and Autonomous Vehicles, news outlets reported Monday that Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, Paris and Buenos Aires, as well as five other cities to be added later this year, will have access to data and coaching from urban planners so the cities can research how to use the technology to address local challenges.

Nashville Director of Transportation Erin Hafkenschiel says she does not believe autonomous vehicles will solve all of the city's traffic issues, but she hopes the cars could be used to increase mobility for senior citizens and those with disabilities.
