(TNS) — The first self-driving shuttles in Ohio will hit the streets in Columbus this week.
May Mobility, a Michigan-based start-up, will operate the shuttles as part of an initiative announced in July by Smart Columbus and DriveOhio.
"We're proud to have the first self-driving shuttle in Ohio being tested on the streets of Columbus," Columbus Mayor Andrew J. Ginther said in a news release. "This pilot will shape future uses of this emerging technology in Columbus and the nation."
The shuttle service will run along the Scioto Mile, connecting riders to COSI, the National Veterans Memorial and Bicentennial Park. An operator will ride along who will oversee the shuttle and take control if need be.
