Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has signed an MoU with the World Economic Forum (WEF) to promote the strategic partnerships relevant to the Safe Drive Initiative Framework (SafeDI Framework) of the Forum. RTA says the MoU supports Dubai’s strategy to transform 25 per cent of total trips in the city into self-driving trips by year 2030.
Ahmed Hashem Bahrozyan, CEO of Public Transport Agency, and Head of the Self Driving Transport Congress and Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport Organising Committee, signed the MoU on behalf of RTA. Jeremy Jurgens, Managing Director and Member of the Managing Board of the World Economic Forum signed on behalf of the Forum.
RTA says it organises the Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport as a catalyst to achieve its vision to make 25 percent of all trips in Dubai smart and driverless by 2030. The Challenge is a multi-year international competition designed for industry leaders, start-ups, and academia tackling the transport challenges faced by global cities.
