Be fun to see them going down the street on fire.

Better odds in Phoenix. The most organized city I have ever visited outside of Disney World. Trash cans on every street corner with high dollar fines for littering (signs explaining this near every trash can).

For automated cars, the downtown is laid out in a perfect grid pattern.

It's been a while since I was in Phoenix. Anyone that lives there now, please elucidate.

Uber type hailing system.

No idea. Probably the traveling salesman equation. Good luck!

They will simply use vehicles that can be hosed out after use. Return to garage at certain intervals or after a complaint.

Not advocating Uber, not a fan. Just pointing out that a similar hailing system could be used.

This is just a rumour started by Quato and his gang to undermine faith in the government.

Will it be as convenient and comfortable as the Scarborough LRT, though?

 It's like a magical moving bus stop to get you to the bus stop. What a world we live in!

The city says to "monitor and learn" from the pilot, a certified operator from Pacific Western Transportation and one customer service ambassador will be on board for every trip.

Ah the future. So there will no longer be a driver. Rather a 'driver' and another person!

It will be interesting to see how they handle a decent snowstorm.  Looking at the wheels in the article, it could be a bit of a problem.

No actual driver?

I'm sure the homeless people will love it -- get to sleep in a dry, warm place all night for the cost of a single bus ticket, and no one to tell them to stop smoking or doing meth.

All while ignoring the fundamental rule of focus and attention that a person not doing anything will zone out and not react in time. The only purpose of the human is to give victims someone to sue besides the company.

Doubtful. You would probably need to hail the taxi with an app.  The doors won't just open if you knock on the thing.

Also, fork you for talking down to homeless people.

FTFA: The shuttle can accommodate eight passengers and an on-board safety attendant will oversee operations to ensure the vehicle is working properly.
