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!

Podcar City Gavle

Podcar City GavleDennis Mica, Business Development Manager

We look forward to discussing dedicated lanes versus mixed traffic and the added value to passengers at Podcar City.

PodCar City Gavle

Podcar City Gavle is organized from October 10-12, 2018. The conference focuses on how we can plan for automated shared mobility, bringing together autonomous shuttles and automated transit networks. Where the autonomous shuttles focus on mixed traffic, automated transit networks typically feature dedicated right-of-way: an interesting debate, which surely will be present at the conference as well. Which provides the better travel exprience, features a more desireable business case? The pace of innovation has increased significantly with more systems providers, more interested cities and not least the general public realizing the need for better solutions to the overwhelming congestion in their cities.

2getthere contribution

2getthere is an obvious choice to contribute to Podcar City Gavle and the session about ‘lessons learned & innovations’ on October 11, featuring the longest track record of all comapnies, while also being the first under contract for the delivery of a permanent autonomous shuttle system in mixed traffic. Dennis Mica will again take the stage the next day, contributing to the session ‘what’s coming next’.
