Transport is a cross between a London taxi and a minibus.

Judging from the message, cars can accommodate up to four passengers and will make more than a hundred flights daily between the entrance to the campus and the new Brooklyn ferry pier.

UAVs will work in test mode completely free of charge and there will be a driver behind the wheel who can take control in a critical situation. Also, the operator will control the operation of the Optimus Rides using a special gadget.

Shuttles will run from 7: 00 to 22: 30 on weekdays and will be able to transport about 500 passengers daily and more than 16 thousand passengers per month.

The company also announced plans to expand its network to other states. So, similar projects should earn in California and near Washington, DC. All test zones are complexes separated from city streets.

Recall that earlier Uber запустил unmanned taxis in San Francisco.

During the test trips, there were several nuances: for example, a car ordered for a restaurant was parked not on the side of the road, but right in the middle of the road; in another situation, the car got stuck in one of the traffic lines, although the next one was free, and the driver had to redirect the car to another line on his own.
