#robobus service has started 21st of May 2019

Helsinki RobobusLine is a long-lasting robot bus experiment supported by the Helsinki City Innovation Fund and EU-wide H2020 mySMARTLife project with the aim of creating base for automated public transport. The project also supports the ability of Finnish companies to produce technology and business for automated buses and routes. In the project an automated bus (robot bus) is running during two years on public open roads among mixed vehicle traffic starting on year 2018. The route may change during the trial periods.

Departures can not be guaranteed. See @HRLpoikkeusinfo or POIKKEUSINFO for additional information.
