Germany city Hamburg plans to test driverless buses by 2021

Germany's northern port city Hamburg is planning to test its first driverless buses by 2021, local media reported on Saturday.

"We want to have first pilot lines by 2021, where the operation of autonomous buses can be tested," Henrik Falk, CEO of Hamburger Hochbahn, which operates the underground system and large parts of the bus system in the city, was quoted by newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt as saying.

"The autonomous vehicles may naturally integrate into the city's landscape in future," Falk said.

The new subway line U5 in Hamburg, whose construction will begin in 2021, is also considering introducing driverless trains.

The autonomous system will make the transport "much more efficient and flexible", according to Falk.
