A driverless shuttle project has commenced in Greenwich today, raising a fair degree of interest about the passenger experience.

I'm local to the area, so I can see why they've chosen the Thames Path at North Greenwich where passenger density is relatively low. I guess it's better to start slowly with pioneering technology that puts human safety bang in the spotlight.

If these shuttle pods can genuinely offer a supplementary benefit to the existing transport system, then I'm supportive of it. However, I can imagine the cost implications of a larger roll-out may be prohibitive, but I'm optimistic this could catch on - certainly at entertainment destinations like the O2. 

If it can get me home late at night without the need for an Uber, then I'm on board!
