Pitch Line: Smart cities should start with smart public transit, the only way to truly reduce travel time, create an alternative for the (private) car and to create more living space, is by reducing the number of vehicle movements in a city. Sharing rides does all that.

Our proven technology can safely operate on public roads or dedicated lanes and deliver a customized, green and flexible transit solution.

The extended Rivium system was equipped with 2nd generation GRT vehicles in 2006, and is still operational today.
