Why we’re here

We’re bringing together the best minds in AI, engineering and mobility to deliver a fully autonomous shared transport service for Europe’s cities.

The benefits will be huge and wide-ranging:

Cities

Cars, taxis and private hire vehicles take up nearly half of central London’s street space, but account for just 13% of distance travelled.

Transport

A third of London commuters are still lacking a better option than using their own vehicle.

Environment

Research estimates long-term exposure to NO2 pollution is responsible for up to 5,900 deaths per year in our capital.

Safety

In 2016, 2,501 people were killed or seriously injured on London streets in road traffic collisions.

Access

Transport now accounts for the greatest proportion of household budgets in the UK.
