Two driverless buses to take up passenger transport in Tallinn

Two self-driving passenger vans that will be carrying passengers between Viru Square and the Tallinn Creative Hub (Kultuurikatel) until the end of August arrived in Tallinn on Friday.

Bringing the two Easymile vehicles to Tallinn for one and a half months costs some €100,000, two thirds of which is covered by the private sector, Valdek Laur, adviser to the Estonian presidency of the EU Council on digital solutions, told BNS.

Since the buses will be driving along a tram line that is currently undergoing reconstruction, they will not operate beyond August, when there will be trams on the route again. Negotiations were going on with the owner of the vehicles to keep them on display in Tallinn until September, Laur added.
