My hometown of Reston, Virginia, is getting self-driving cars!

Optimus Ride has struck a deal with a giant property development firm to offer self-driving shuttles at a new mixed-use development down the road from my elementary school.

The proposal seems similar to projects managed by May Mobility, in that the autonomous vehicles will run fixed shuttle routes to and from parking garages. The service will also apparently be limited to tenants of the development. So it won’t be a service open to the general public.

But starting small, self-driving cars are heading everywhere :-)

I love self-driving cars and I work on them at Voyage!
