Autonomous Vehicle

Autonomous Vehicle – Trial Service

West Kowloon is committed to providing cultural facilities that are accessible for everyone. As we move towards completing our venues, we are trialling a new form of completely autonomous, zero-emissions vehicle that will help visitors navigate the district.

 

The driverless electric vehicle operates on a fixed route within the Art Park and is free for use by all park visitors. Fully equipped with sensors to identify traffic and road signs and detect everything in its path, it offers an environmentally friendly mobility solution that interacts safely with pedestrians, small children and pets.

 

Passengers can board the vehicle at any of the boarding points marked on the map below.

 


 

Schedule (subject to change)
