Self-driving taxis are coming to The Villages!
A company named Voyage has already started testing its self-driving taxi fleet within the community.
Beginning in early 2018, they’ll start rolling out a door-to-door self-driving taxi service to residents.
They’ve been running the program in a community out in California (which just so happens to also be called “The Villages” … no relation though) for the past 6 months.
Simply amazing. I wonder what Harold Schwartz would think of this!
