    The article says the pilot program runs Jan 11-20th and the shuttle goes between Container Park and Flippin’ Good Burgers & Shakes.

    If you're in the area, please ride and give us a report!

    Should be a non-pilot program then, right? :D

    Staying at ElCo most likely right in the heart of this time range. I am skeptical of this driverless nonsense but will try to ride and see how it goes!

    Considering the Vegas cab union I'm surprised this is going anywhere.
    Also, considering the Vegas cabbies this could be awesome! Obviously in its infancy, but I'm optimistic!

    I'm wondering when we'll see the thread "tipping etiquette for driverless shuttles and cabs".

    Took me thru the tunnel, pretended to speak binary only til I told it no tip---suddenly it knew English. I think these were specifically programmed for the Las Vegas market.
