It's not a trolley.  It's a "cube" that holds 12 passengers.  In order to be effective, it must deliver frequent service.  There's no mention of fare collection.  I suppose random inspections will take place with fines imposed for scofflaws.  Sloan



A self-driving electric trolley, dubbed “Olli,” will be tested this fall and may be on Knoxville streets in 2018, shuttling tourists between set points.

City officials unveiled the vehicle, made by Knoxville-based Local Motors, on Market Square Thursday morning.
