So, focusing on those flying machines that can carry two people at a time within small amount time from source to destination will be soon seen in two countries; first comes Singapore and Dubai.

It is also expected that there will be introduction of on-demand bus system, driverless pods, and trending self-driving taxis.
Focusing on the next country is the nation with the tallest tower in the world known Burj Khalifa. Yes, you guessed it right. It’s Dubai who is striving hard to beat the timeline of Singapore. Unlike Singapore, Dubai is working on these airtaxi but the data related to the operations, management, work plans, and prototypes are kept confidential. But Dubai has claimed that it will soon launch the airborne taxi service by the end of this year. It won’t be driverless but it might be the first step towards air taxi concept.
