Ford and Lyft Partner up with Self-Driving Cars

  • Ford and Lyft entered into a self-driving car agreement that is non-exclusive
  • In the agreement, Lyft is creating the platform for users to request a self-driving car and Ford is supplying the car
  • Lyft operates an open platform so it’s likely Lyft will try to make additional agreements to other automakers
  • In its own right, Ford has worked to make its own self-driving car with its own technology an is unlikely to give up on those goals
