Providing autonomous rides in Las Vegas since 2018
For over five years, Motional’s AVs have been available to public passengers on the Lyft network in Las Vegas. The service has introduced hundreds of thousands of consumers to safe driverless technology - with the vast majority of passengers giving their ride a top rating! In 2022, Lyft passengers began taking rides in Motional’s new, all-electric IONIQ 5 AV. The autonomous IONIQ 5 features advanced driverless technology and was custom-designed for passenger comfort and ease-of-use.
Motional launches first robotaxi service on the Uber network
Motional’s all-electric IONIQ 5 robotaxis are now available to Uber riders in Las Vegas. Uber and Motional have a 10-year multimarket framework agreement that is expected to create one of the largest deployments of autonomous vehicles (AVs) on a major ride-hail network. Riders in Las Vegas interested in taking a ride in a Motional robotaxi can visit the Uber app and select UberX or Uber Comfort Electric options for a chance to be matched with a Motional AV. Motional is also conducting autonomous deliveries for Uber Eats customers in Santa Monica.
As for my first time in Las Vegas, this was the most excellent experience. As a deaf blind person, the ride experience was amazing! Informative driver with braille information was wonderful. And they let me explore and touch the sensors around the car! I definitely recommend this ride to everyone!
It's my first self-driving car ride. I loved it an am convinced this is the future.
Just got my first self-driving car - it was perfect. Could swear a person was driving the car. I felt safe and secure the whole ride.
Why pick an autonomous ride?
Autonomous vehicles have the potential to bring many benefits to communities:
AVs are never drunk, drowsy, or distracted. Motional has driven over 2 million autonomous miles with zero at-fault incidents.
40% of Americans have said they don’t have reliable access or any access to public transportation.
Improved Quality of Life
The average American spends approximately an hour commuting each day - time better spent resting, working, or socializing.
A Motional study in Singapore found that autonomous ride-hails could reduce the reliance on personal vehicles by two-thirds.
