Dubai To Deploy Driverless Cars in 2030

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has signed an agreement with the self-driving car subsidiary of General Motors Co. to operate driverless taxis and ride-hailing services in the emirate.

Dubai’s Crown Prince discussed the future of smart mobility with Jeff Bleich, chief legal officer of General Motors-Cruise.

"Our goal is to convert 25 per cent of the total transportation trips in Dubai to self-driving trips through various means of transportation by 2030,” said His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai's Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai.

The vehicles are expected to arrive to Dubai in 2023, raising the number of autonomous cars in the city to 4,000 by 2030.

The all-electric vehicles are environmentally-friendly and capable of serving a wide range of clients from different community segments, including senior citizens and people of determination.
