When you order a ride, does it arrive at the door and toot impatiently? And who stacks the luggage?

It just carries three people - and we all know that three's a crowd! :icon-mrgreen:

Every city in this country should have electric trams. Hobart definitely should.
As they run on rails maybe they could be driverless?

I understand that when they are allowed on the road they will still require a standby driver,so,what is the point of them?

It seems a necessary precaution in these early stages. I think there is still much training of these cars to be sorted out, as different emergencies are taken on board?

Even if driverless cars never become common, a lot of technology is discovered along the way, some of which may be useful in other areas.

driverless buses have been trialled on the sunshine coast, only for one week december 2017
restricted to 7kph, and with an operator, to be sure to be sure.....

"FUTURISTIC bus turned plenty of heads on its maiden voyage along a busy beach front this morning.

Coast residents will have a chance to experience driverless technology at Mooloolaba in the coming days during a public demonstration of French company Easy Mile's EZ10 electric shuttle.

The $320,000 shuttle carries up to 12 people and can reach speeds up to 45kmh."

He/she will probably have access to a big red button on the dash,more likely. I wonder if a drivers license will be required.
