Lyft has another self-driving partnership in the works

Standard

Lyft isn’t done lining up partners for an autonomous future, and with a wide-open platform for self-driving development, that won’t likely end soon.The ride-hailing company has already teamed with a major automaker in GM, the biggest tech company in the space with Google’s Waymo, and one of the most proven self-driving startups in its recent alliance with nuTonomy, which will aim to put self-driving Lyft vehicles on the streets of Boston sometime in the near future. Next in line: Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). The UK-based automaker will partner with Lyft via a $25 million investment through Inmotion, its mobility services business. JLR will provide Lyft drivers with a fleet of cars as part of the deal, while the automaker will use Lyft’s new Open Platform to help develop its self-driving tech.
