Flying taxis coming sooner than you think due to Uber receiving a contract from NASA. This deal will entail Uber to develop software for managing “flying taxi” routes in the air. Uber hopes to introduce a flying taxi service around 2023. The test “run” of their product should be in 2020.
Uber’s head of product, Jeff Holden, said at a Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal: “Combining Uber’s software engineering expertise with NASA’s decades of airspace experience to tackle this is a crucial step forward for Uber Elevate. Technology will allow LA residents to literally fly over the city’s historically bad traffic, giving them time back to use in far more productive ways.”
Uber projects the price to be equivalent to riding an UberX.
