We keep harping on how regular car buyers aren’t going to be able to buy fully automated self-driving cars for many years to come, and the same goes for autonomous car rentals. But, autonomy is being introduced to our society sooner than that. Self-driving semis operating in platoons on our highways promise to ease our desperate shortage of long-haul truckers, autonomous low-speed passenger shuttles are in service on campuses and elsewhere now, and using technology developed by Ford and Bosch, your next rental car may very well be able to drive itself—only without you in the car. You can try driverless minibus rental or any other vehicle as renting a autonomous vehicle for a few days before you buy could save you thousands of dollars from buying the wrong car.
