Another VIP for the Masdar PRT: IMF managing director Christine Lagarde

Even in our 9th year of operations it remains very rewarding that 2getthere’s PRT system at Masdar City is a must-ride system during any visit – also when you are considered a VIP.

Christine Lagarde rides 2getthere’s PRT

Christine Lagarde, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), visited Masdar to witness the progress of Abu Dhabi’s flagship sustainable urban community, MasdarCity, and learn how investment in youth is helping the UAE to deliver on the UN SDGs.

As part of the vist she also enjoyed a ride on 2getthere’s state-of-the-art sustainable PRT system. The system is now in its’ 9th year of operation and has carried over 2,4 million passengers to date. The system availability that is consistently being achieved exceeds 99.7%. The Zagato design and the vehicle build are applauded by the passengers, many of them stating that it is actually more advanced and better build in comparison to more recently introduced vehicles.

Another VIP for the Masdar PRT

One of the top things to do in Abu Dhabi is visit Masdar City and ride the PRT system. Join the many other VIPs that went before you and enjoyed the ride! Ranging from the Dutch and Swedish Royal familty to international country leaders and famous movie actors. Our personal favorite remains the video by Adam Levy: enjoy!

A driverless Smart Police Station for the Dubai Police

driverless-smart-police-station

The Dubai Police driverless Smart Police Station will be on full display during upcoming events, including the Smart Mobility conference late February.

Driverless Smart Police Station

At the World Government Summit in Dubai, the Dubai Police demonstrated the concept for a driverless Smart Police Station. With multiple Smart Police Stations opened in Dubai last year, the concept for a driverless version is based on 2getthere’s 3rd generation GRT vehicle. The vehicle was made available for the exhibition and will be used at other events in the same livery the rest of the month.

Where typically the vehicle transports passengers, the modification by the Dubai Police shows the flexibility of the platform. 2getthere is looking to continue working with the Dubai Police towards the driverless SPS concept.

The future of urban mobility (26-27 february): 2getthere’s 3rd generation autonomous shuttle

the-future-of-urban-mobility

The future of urban mobility is here: explore the technology and innovation for urban mobility and emerging smart transport infrastructure models.

Experience the 3rd generation autonomous shuttle

On February 26 and 27, 2getthere’s 3rd generation is on full display at the Smart Urban Mobility conference in Dubai. The vehicle on display is a fully customized version, featuring a special livery. Details on the custimization and the livery will only be released at a later date – keep an eye on our social media.

2getthere’s autonomous vehicle is unique in the market: it is the only vehicle that is bi-directional and features doors on both sides. In addition, it is the only one featuring an air-conditioning fit for the Middle East climate. It features a higher speed as well: up to 40km/hr. The vehicle sets itself apart in its look-and-feel (designed by Zagato) and build quality (assembly by Altran). It accommodates up to 24 passengers and features rapid recharging (within 10 minutes), thus requiring a significantly smaller fleet size to meet the capacity throughout the day.

Want to hear and see more? Curious about the customization and livery? Visit us at ‘The Future of Urban Mobility’!

Asia and Middle East JV’s

2getthere is running worldwide projects where automated vehicles are driving in public transportation without a safety driver or steward. Since we have set up joint-ventures with SMRT in Asia and UTS in the Middle East, the next step is to set up and align the identities with 2getthere’s. We have created variants of the 2getthere logo. Where our original logo features orange to recognize that we are a Duch entity, 2getthere Asia’s logo features red to reflect SMRT and Singapore, while 2getthere Middle East features UAE green.

Colors

In Asia red is the color of happiness, celebration and joy, while in the UAE the green represents the country’s prosperity. It also refers to nature, the protection of environmental resources, such as green business and sustainability. With the joint ventures 2getthere covers the global demand for driverless vehicles locally.
