The Motional and Lyft legacy
For over four 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!
Recently, Motional’s new all-electric IONIQ 5 AVs became available for Lyft riders in Las Vegas. Starting in 2023, the service will become fully driverless and will begin expanding to other major U.S. cities.
Motional and Lyft have developed a first-of-its-kind partnership. Together, we’ve built a blueprint for scaling self-driving vehicles across multiple cities.

Motional and Lyft first launched their autonomous ride-hail service, where Motional’s AVs are available on the Lyft network, as a pilot at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2018. The pilot was so well received that Motional and Lyft made the service permanently available to Lyft riders in Las Vegas.

Since launching in 2018, Motional has conducted over 100,000 autonomous rides on the Lyft network in Las Vegas and introduced hundreds of thousands of consumers to driverless technology. Over 95% of riders have awarded their ride five-out-of-five stars, and many first-time passengers have become repeat riders.
