Uber popular for connecting you to an affordable ride anywhere, anytime, has unveiled its plans to launch a flying taxi plan in Dallas, USA.
According to reports Uber revealed their plan on Tuesday at a conference in Dallas. Uber revealed it will demo the futuristic transport system in 2020.
Uber’s announcement comes just one day after Kitty Hawk, a project backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, took the wraps off its VTOL aircraft. The fully electric aircraft can only fly over water.
Uber said the company in partnership with Embraer and Aurora Flight Sciences will work together to achieve this goal by 2020.
The Kitty Hawk Flyer weighs 220 pounds and relies on 8 rotors to fly. The startup is offering a $2,000 discount to those who pay $100 now to get on the wait-list, but a final price for the vehicle has yet to be released.
