Taking a ride in a driverless taxi in China’s Chongqing

CHONGQING – Hailing an Apollo Go robotaxi in Chongqing’s Yongchuan district can be a surprising experience when the car pulls up without anyone – including a driver – inside.

There are five fully driverless Apollo Go robotaxis plying this district in the south-west of Chongqing. Nine others have a human safety driver on board, bringing the total number of the company’s robotaxis in the city to 14.
