Now You Can Pay for a Driverless Taxi Ride from GM’s Cruise
Cruise, a self-driving firm Cruise has worked hard to bring its self-driving taxi services to masses and is now being implemented.
The week before, Cruise received a permit from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and is able to charge customers for ridesharing that is driverless.
The Cruise, which is backed by GM Cruise received a limited approval to test the service in February, as did Waymo however, the most recent approval was a complete change.
Cruise claims to be its "first and only company to operate a commercial, driverless, ride-hail service in a major U.S. city."
The company originally planned to start its service by 2019, but it did not happen. However, now If you're near San Francisco, you can give it a shot.
According to Cruise it will be operating 30 electric vehicles from 10 pm and 6 am on all roads in San Francisco.
However, severe weather such as heavy fog, rain, smoke or snow could make the service stop until the weather improves.
In the event that you're in an acceptable location during the hours of operation then you can take a self-driving taxi, pay for a ride and go on a journey.
It appears that the company will gradually rolling the ride out to certain regions over the next couple of weeks, making sure the process runs smoothly.
This is vital for autonomous ridesharing, however, it's crucial to keep in mind that it's only accessible in a specific city during certain times and with the best conditions for weather.
However, these limitations could be removed in the future as technology develops. You can try it out by joining Cruise's Cruise website.
