National News // Oct. 3, 2019

The project also has the backing of the Cantonal Transport Office.

The idea is being spearheaded – and for the moment financed – by the European Transport Commission.

Geneva hospital has eight sites around the canton and is constantly transporting patients between them. A drone that could carry people would make the system far more efficient.

If the idea gets off the ground – it won’t be until 2025.
