No dream is too crazy for this city. And as Dubai propels towards achieving its aim of 25% autonomous transport by 2030, the dream of sky pods is one step closer to being realised.
In February 2019, the goal of introducing sky pods was announced, and now an agreement between the Roads and Transport Authority and BeemCar has cemented that plan.
Beem Car is one of the biggest developers of sky pods in the world and the agreement means the company will now start developing sky pods for eventual use in Dubai. Erm… how cool is that!?!
No further details or completion dates have been announced.

There will be 21 stations linking the cable cars, bringing a brand new mode of urban transportation to Dubai
The sky pods will have the capacity to carry 8,400 passengers per hour. Dubbed, the ‘future of mobility’ these will eventually completely change the game for city transport and it’s brilliant to see Dubai at the forefront, making it happen.
