Organizations use Technology Roadmapping (TRM) to discover a critical path of action to pursue in their research and development of future technologies and products. This provides a technology roadmap for creating autonomous bus service in the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) . A review of related literature and the essential market drivers, products, and technologies review were researched and integrated into this technology roadmap, inferring that autonomous bus service be made available in the year 2042 while continuously enhancing Intelligent Transportation Systems and its related products from the year 2018. The QFD (Quality Function Deployment) method was used to discover and evaluate relationships between market drivers, products and technologies.
