ZF acquires majority stake in 2getthere
The vehicle technology company ZF Friedrichshafen AG has acquired 60 percent of the shares of 2getthere B.V. Based in Utrecht (the Netherlands) and with offices in San Francisco, Dubai and Singapore, the company offers entire automated transport systems. Their application spectrum ranges from driverless electric transport systems at airports to innovative urban transport infrastructures. With its strategic investment, ZF aims to establish a foothold in the growth markets "Mobility as a Service" and driverless transportation systems.

The majority share in 2getthere complements ZF's existing investments and cooperations such as the joint venture e.GO Moove GmbH with Aachen-based e.GO Mobile AG, which aims to produce the autonomous minibus e.GO Mover, and Transdev GmbH, a leading operator and global provider of integrated mobility solutions.

Founded in 2984, 2getthere specialises in the construction of driverless passenger and freight transport systems. The company's systems operate in several major cities around the world, including Rotterdam, Abu Dhabi, Singapore and numerous airports. 2getthere's driverless transport systems have so far transported more than 14 million people in the Rivium (Capelle aan den IJssel/Netherlands) and Masdar City (Abu Dhabi/VAE) business parks, covering a total of more than 100 million kilometres. According to ZF, the reliability of the systems installed by 2getthere, which include not only the vehicles but also the vehicle control and software architecture, should be over 99.7 percent.
