The world's first Autonomous Rail Rapid Transit (ART) system starts a three-month trial operation in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province, on May 8, 2018. The electric smart train, produced by CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd., was unveiled in last October. The three-carriage train, which can hold more than 300 passengers, is designed with a maximum speed of 70 kilometers per hour. The first phase of the self-driving smart train, which runs on virtual tracks, covers a three-kilometer-long route between Shen Nong Grand Theater and Zhuzhou Sports Center. The second phase of the ART system will kick off construction this year. With a total length of nine kilometers, it will be completed within two years. It is expected that the ART system will be connected to traditional buses and bus rapid transit (BRT) system in the future to improve the city's public transport capacity.
