Dubai Is The Latest City That Wants To Kill Cars
This marks the first time the Origin robotaxi will be used outside of the US, though San Francisco will still be the first city to see them go online. By 2030, Cruise and Dubai aim to have 4,000 self-driving taxis operating within the city. Part of the agreement makes Cruise Dubai’s exclusive robotaxi provider until 2029.
“This agreement, which is the first of its kind worldwide between a government entity and a leading developer of autonomous vehicles, and autonomous vehicle technology, is a major step towards realizing Dubai’s Self-Driving Transport Strategy aimed at converting 25 percent of total trips in Dubai into self-driving transport trips across different modes of transport by 2030,” said His Highness Sheikh Hamdan.
