The invention is a system and method for managing a resource shared by a plurality of autonomous vehicles. Each vehicle includes a navigator for causing the vehicle to travel a specified route to the resource and for generating a queue position request upon approach to the resource. A queue or fleet manager establishes a queue to control access to the resource. The queue manager generates a queue position in response to receipt of the queue position request from an approaching vehicle. Under control of the queue manager, autonomous vehicles are passed through the queue and allowed to access the resource in a first-in, first-out manner.
