Improving the quality of city life: cleaner, greener transport | Kim Thomas
Innovations such as Greenwich’s driverless vehicles will play a key part in building a green, effective transport system
Visitors to north Greenwich in April might have been puzzled to see a little green and white pod – with passengers, but no driver – making its way down the Thames path. The pod, which runs on electricity, was designed to test the public response to the idea of driverless vehicles. If successful, the vehicles could be used in shuttle services providing a simple last mile connection between a transport hub and a hotel or shopping centre.
