Uber has announced its intent to bring its cars back to the Golden State — this time with permits in hand after Uber first tried to roll out its fleet of autonomous taxis on the streets of San Francisco California’s DMV quickly put the kibosh on those plans.
Uber spokesman said “These cars are legally registered and are being driven manually”.
“We are taking steps to complete our application to apply for a DMV testing permit. As we said in December, Uber remains 100 percent committed to California,”he added.
The company’s fleet of Volvo XC90s won’t be carrying passengers for now. Instead, they are currently being used to generate maps of the city streets. Uber hasn’t even actually applied for the permit yet, but is working with the department to get its paperwork together and does plan to move forward.
