Aptiv announced that it had reached a significant milestone of 5,000 self-driving public rides, powered by the Aptiv autonomous driving platform.

Thousands of residents and tourists in Las Vegas are taking Aptiv self-driving cars accompanied by a safety driver and safety operator, to and from popular spots on the high-traffic strip. In May, Aptiv announced the deployment of 30 self-driving cars, equipped with Aptiv's autonomous driving platform. These vehicles are offered to the public of Las Vegas via the Lyft app.

Hitting 5,000 consumer rides is a major milestone, not just for Aptiv and Lyft, but for the entire mobility space. Aptiv continues to see exponential growth in passenger rides, with nearly perfect user ratings of 4.96 out of 5 stars. This partnership is a true proof point that Aptiv's autonomous driving platform and its vehicles have the potential to change the world of mobility. By demonstrating the viability of their commercial self-driving product and creating better efficiency for transportation network providers, consumers will have access to safer and more accessible transit.

Since the start of offering Aptiv self-driving cars to the public on the Lyft network, feedback has been increasingly positive. Passengers have been describing their rides as an amazing experience and have been impressed with how technologically advanced the car is while feeling safe and at ease. 96% of passengers have indicated that they intend to ride again while 20% of passengers have already jumped in for their second or third self-driving ride.

This is an important next step for Aptiv on their path to commercialisation for Automated Mobility on Demand (AMoD). Through this deployment, the company looks forward to fine-tuning our management, expertise and leadership in autonomous driving and smart vehicle architecture, with plans to expand the commercialisation of AMoD beyond Las Vegas.
