Lyft riders will soon have the option to call a driver-less rideshare

American auto-manufacturer GM is partnering with car sharing service, Lyft to test a fleet of self-driving Chevrolet Bolts on public streets. When riders hail a car in a yet-to-be disclosed city, they will have the option to choose self-driving taxis or traditional car to pick them up. The prototype app also interfaces with GM's OnStart assistant to answer questions if there are issues. In addition to the driver-less cars, Chevrolet will also be renting Bolts and Chevy Equinoxs to Lyft drivers.
