Driverless Taxis will offer authentic cab experience by randomly refusing service dogs on religious grounds (smells optional)

GM will roll out its driverless taxi service in 2019, two years ahead of its rival Ford

General Motors will roll out its driverless taxi service in 2019 – two years ahead of its rival Ford, the firm has announced.

Users will summon one of GM’s ‘robo-taxis’ through a smartphone app and a driverless car will then pick them up and take them to their destination.

GM has already poured billions into autonomous vehicle research, and expects its robo-taxi service to be the main use for its self-driving cars.

Ford announced in September it is working to develop a similar autonomous ride-hailing fleet by 2021 with US-based Uber rival Lyft.
