This paper presents findings of the investigation, intended to determine level of the autonomous vehicles (AV) adoption by Saudi Arabian community. Survey included users from industry, public, government and traffic authorities. Based on the investigation statistical analysis was performed. We incorporating criteria identified by responses that influence degree of technology acceptance. Criteria are related to positive outcomes, such as air pollution reduction, environmental protection, sustainability and transport efficiency. We also included negative issues: high cost and risks of the automation. Survey shows that younger participants, in the age of 26 to 35, are more interested to use new technology within next 10 years. They are better educated and aware of benefits and all other aspects of the driverless transport. Following that, and other findings from the investigation, presented in this report, we have managed to establish, that the community, businesses and government will be ready to implement autonomous driving technology by 2030. By that time, all engineering, regulatory, moral and ethical issues, associated to the AV full introduction, given in our, presented transition model, should be solved.
