The weird realms of future technology are nigh, and driverless buses are the next big innovation that’s coming to London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

New inventions are being made everyday and a whole range of shiny, technological masterpieces are being introduced into our London way of living. So why not go that extra mile? In a bus with no driver, that is.

We know, it sounds a little scary, because how the hell does it know when to stop and turn? But we have to put our trust in these things… right?

The reliable people over at Navya are trialling their new autonomous shuttle bus in the Olympic Park and what’s better, there’s no need to book and it’s all free.

The miniature route stops off at Lee Valley VeloPark, Timber Lodge Cafe, Copper Box Arena and Here East. A short but sweet journey to get us all a little more comfortable with the thought of getting into a vehicle without any drivers.

The trials run regularly so hop onboard for a first chance to see the wonders of the Olympic Park. The rest of the dates for the tour are as follows:

  • Monday 11 to Friday 15 September 10am to 5pm
  • Sunday 17 to Friday 22 September 10am to 5pm
  • Monday 25 September 10am to 5pm
  • Wednesday 27 to Saturday 30 September 10am to 5pm
