Ireland's first driverless bus has embarked on its maiden voyage at Dublin's Docklands.

The electric vehicle will run from the Convention Centre to Three Arena today and tomorrow as part of European Mobility Week.

The EZ10 bus has room for 15 people and can go up to 25 kilometres an hour.

 

Jamie Cudden, Manager of Dublin City Council's Smart City Programme, explains how busses like it could be used in the future:

"Maybe airports from the planes to the terminal, in ports from a ferry back to the terminal, campus types of environments."

"We would also like to see that last mile of your journey from your bus stop or your train station where it connects you back to where you live."
