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.
