Frisco’s ‘North Platinum Corridor’ Helps Lead the Way for On-Demand, Driverless Car Service

(Frisco, TX – August 7, 2018) The first pilot program in Texas for on-demand, driverless car service on public roads is steering mobility solutions into the future by way of Frisco’s North Platinum Corridor.

The California-based self-driving car company Drive.ai moved more than 150 people over the course of 107 trips during the first five days of service. Riders are shuttled between HALL Park and The Star.

Initially, people who work for companies at HALL Park can hail the driverless bright orange vans through a smartphone app during the six-month pilot with planned expansion into Frisco Station. The seven-fleetservice operates Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., except during inclement weather. During the first week, it took four minutes, on average, for app users to be picked up after summoning a ride. More than half of riders who used the service during the first week were repeat customers.
