Cruise scored a huge win when it became the first “driverless” autonomous vehicle (AV) passenger service to be authorized to operate in California. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) authorized Cruise, LLC to participate in California’s first pilot program. The CPUC’s Driverless Pilot program enables passengers to ride in a test vehicle that operates without a driver in the vehicle. One of the constraints of the program is that Cruise may not charge passengers for any rides in test AVs.
