Would you trust a taxi with no driver?

Taxi firm Addison Lee is betting its customers will be ready to, in London at least, in just three years’ time.

It has joined forces with self-driving software specialist Oxbotica, and says the tie-up means it will offer self-driving taxis in the capital by 2021.

The move will pit it against rival ride-hailing app Uber, which is also planning to roll out driverless cars on its network in the future, pending regulatory permission.

Addison Lee says it will now work with Oxbotica on digitally mapping public roads in and around the capital.
