With the arrival of autonomous transportation, passengers will enjoy a state-of-the-art ride. Safety, experience, and quality are top of mind as we connect with leaders in the self-driving industry.

As technology evolves, we’ll face a hybrid ecosystem of both human-driven and autonomous vehicles. When the cost of transportation as a service becomes more affordable than car ownership, demand will increase — and so will ride requests for drivers and autonomous vehicles. Wherever passengers are heading, they’ll still enjoy safe, reliable service from Lyft.

Change Is Already in Motion

At Lyft, we know we can make a difference together, and have already seen transportation change as a result of ridesharing. In 2017, passengers took over 375 million Lyft rides and saved 92 million travel hours — a time savings valued at $3.2 billion. And that’s just the beginning.
