Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi recently said he'd like to 'run the bus systems for a city,' echoing the ride-hailing firm's ambitions to revolutionize public transportation systems.
Uber has been testing prototype Volvo cars pictured for more than a year, with safety drivers in the front seat to intervene if the self-driving system fails, in Tempe, Arizona and Pittsburgh. Still, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has indicated some willingness to make his company more closely aligned with public transportation services. At the Goldman Sachs technology conference last week, Khosrowshahi said Uber could become marketplace for other transportation companies, similar to how Amazon is an e-commerce marketplace for small and large businesses.
Uber also has its sights on further disrupting the taxi industry by putting self-driving cabs on the road by Khosrowshahi said that soon customers will have the option to ride with a normal Uber driver or with one of its automated cars. Uber has tested its autonomous vehicles on public roads as part of a number of US pilot projects, including Pittsburgh, Tempe, Phoenix and San Francisco. While Uber hasn't said where the self-driving service will launch, it is likely to be in one of the cities that has trailed the service.
