Lyft surpasses 5,000 self-driving rides

Lyft has completed more than 5,000 self-driving rides through its ride-hailing app, the company said on Tuesday, as it aims to become a serious competitor in autonomous driving while its biggest rival, Uber, retrenches.

I always said that I wouldn’t want to take a self-driving Lyft ride, but I changed my mind. I would really like to see this technology in action.
