The implementation of the project comes within the framework of the efforts of the Roads and Transport Authority to provide self-driving transportation, as part of the implementation of the Dubai strategy for smart self-driving, which aims to convert 25% of the total mobility trips in Dubai to self-driving trips through various means of transportation by 2030. It comes within the framework of the authority’s endeavors to achieve integration between mass transportation, and to provide a short trip service (the first and last mile) that helps users of mass transportation to reach their final destinations.
