Driverless auto service set to begin in North Texas this summer

This summer, you may be able to hail a self-driving car in Texas

According to Drive.ai, the pilot program will initially operate with fixed pickup and drop-off locations near both The Star and HALL Park.

Texas people will enjoy the autonomous ride as the Calif. -based start-up planning to launch a self-driving auto service on public roads in a corridor of the Dallas area that is full of office buildings where traffic is a growing problem. Leading up to the July launch, Drive.ai will work with its partners to engage with members of the Frisco community, ensuring they are educated about and comfortable with the self-driving program. It's a notable milestone for both the company and for Texas - this is the state's first on-demand self-driving auto service available to the public.

The California-based Drive.ai, which is part of a public-private partnership with the city and the Denton County Transportation Authority, among others, is handling all costs involved in the project, though that dollar amount is not being made public.

Once Drive.ai's pilot goes live, the public will have access to a mobile app through which they hail the self-driving cars. Today definitely marks a mobility milestone for our entire region.

Last year, Texas was one of 10 states approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation to let companies pilot automated technology in vehicles. It will also be placing signage along the routes, while the cars themselves are painted bright orange and will be fitted with four external screens that display the vehicle's intentions. Waymo is testing a driverless ride-hailing service in Chandler, Arizona and plans to remove its safety drivers by the end of this year.
