First self-driving taxis to hit Moscow streets in 2024

A fleet of driverless taxis may start operating in the Russian capital within the next several years, according to Deputy Transport Minister Aleksey Semyonov.

“If we efficiently start implementing the plan we are developing on the basis of our stakeholder authorities and key companies (the Transport Ministry, the Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Industry and Trade), then, I believe 2024 is the year when we can launch driverless taxis in a certain regime,” he said.
