Lyft Gains Permission to Test Autonomous Vehicles in California — MotorTrend

Everyone is testing autonomous vehicles in California these days: 

Ride-hailing company Lyft has received permission to test autonomous vehicles in California by the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles, according to a report from Reuters. Lyft is the latest to receive permission in California and joins companies like Waymo and Apple, as well as automakers Subaru, Ford, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and General Motors.

Lyft and Waymo move to counter Uber’s autonomous aspirations. My prediction: Eventually, Alphabet will buy Lyft.
