Lyft, Aptiv to Launch Self-Driving Fleet
May 3, 2018—Aptiv will launch a self-driving fleet on the Lyft network.
The fleet will launch n Las Vegas and include 30 autonomous vehicles.
Lyft passengers will have the ability to hail a self-driving vehicle equipped with the Aptiv technology. The service will be available to the general public starting May 3.
The combination of Aptiv's autonomous driving technology and Lyft's ride-hailing app is the expansion of a successful partnership that launched in Las Vegas during CES 2018. That initial pilot provided more than 400 self-driving rides to the public and earned an average customer rating of 4.99 out of five stars. Like the CES program, vehicles will be operated by highly-trained safety drivers.
