Your next Las Vegas Uber ride may not have a driver behind the wheel.

Uber is partnering with driverless technology company Motional to offer autonomous vehicle rides in Las Vegas, with plans to expand to other major cities like Los Angeles.

Starting Wednesday, Uber customers in Las Vegas can hail an autonomous IONIQ 5 mid-sized crossover, a vehicle Motional designed with Hyundai.

While there will initially be two vehicle operators present in the front seats, Uber and Motional aim to launch a fully driverless commercial service in 2023.

Riders should “get the normal seamlessness and reliability of Uber that they’ve come to expect, with an added touch of a taste of the future,” Noah Zych, Uber’s global head of autonomous mobility and delivery, told USA TODAY.
