New York has launched its first self-driving shuttle service that is free of charge and open to members of the public. New Yorkers and visitors to the city can now catch a self-driving shuttle service that will take them along a 1.1-mile route from Flushing Avenue’s Cumberland Gate to Brooklyn Navy Yard’s new ferry landing, Dock 72. The autonomous vehicles (also known as AVs) are free of charge and will offer rides seven days a week. On weekends, the AVs will connect the ferry dock to Building 77, home to the Navy Yard’s new food hall. The shuttle will operate between 7am and 10pm, with up to 500 passengers expected per day.
