Dubai skyline will soon get a futuristic update.
Dubai is heading toward achieving its aim of 25% autonomous transport by 2030.
The goal of introducing the sky pods was announced, in February 2019. Now an agreement between Roads and Transport Authority and Beem Car has finalized the plan.
Beem Car is one of the biggest developers of sky pods in the world and the agreement means the company will now start developing sky pods for eventual use in Dubai.

There will be 21 stations linking the cable cars and the sky pods will have a capacity to carry 8,400 passengers per hour.
This ‘future mobility’ will eventually change the game of city transport and it’s brilliant to see Dubai at the forefront, making it happen.
