Lyft will offer autonomous rides in Las Vegas during CES

From Engadget - January 2, 2018

Attendees wo not be able to grab a self-driving car to anywhere in Vegas, of course; this is still a point to point affair with more than 20 pre-defined routes and destinations. Aptiv will provide the automated driving vehicles while Lyft will take on the dispatch. The idea is to show how Aptiv's technology can deal with complicated driving environments.
