Lyft on Wed­nes­day be­gan rolling out self­driv­ing cars with users of the smart­phone­sum­moned ride ser­vice in Bos­ton in a project with tech­nol­ogy part­ner nuTon­omy. The launch of the driver­less test pro­gramme stemmed from a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Lyft and nuTon­omy an­nounced ear­lier this year. The com­pa­nies said that they want the pub­lic to ex­pe­ri­ence driver­less vehicles first­hand, so they can bet­ter un­der­stand the im­pact this new tech­nol­ogy will have on their lives. The com­pa­nies will also gather feed­back from pas­sen­gers to im­prove the sys­tem.
