ZF Acquires Netherlands Mobility Provider

ZF Friedrichshafen AG has acquired a 60% share of 2getthere B.V., which operates driverless electric shuttles and other mobility-as-a-service systems. Financial details weren’t provided.

Founded in 1984, Utrecht, Netherlands-based 2getthere has offices in San Francisco, Dubai and Singapore. The company, which says its sales have jumped 60% over the last three years, aims to double its engineering software staff to about 120 people in coming years.

2getthere says it has accumulated more than 100 million km (62 million miles) of autonomous mileage with driverless passenger and cargo vehicles at airports and business parks in Abu Dhabi, Rotterdam and Singapore.

The vehicles (pictured), which were developed in conjunction with Italian coachbuilder Zagato, use 2getthere’s software and controls technologies.
