The announcement is part of a 10-year, non-exclusive agreement for the two companies and Motional's Level 4 autonomous vehicles. The service will see expansion into Los Angeles at a later date.
Uber (UBER) users can book a trip on the app and if an autonomous vehicle is available, they will be matched and receive an offer to opt-in, being notified that the car is autonomous. The vehicles will have operators, but it is expected that by 2023 it will be a fully driverless experience.
The service is using Motional's all-electric Hyundai IONIQ 5-based robotaxis. Motional is a joint venture between Hyundai and and Aptiv (NYSE:APTV).
Motional has also been used for Uber (UBER) Eats deliveries in the Greater Los Angeles area, the two companies added.
Earlier this week, Goldman Sachs listed Uber (UBER) as one of the 12 stocks that mutual and hedge funds love right now.
