Why Uber Should Exit Driverless Car Project

This is why Uber should exit driverless car project and just focus on expanding customer base. Yes, even if you have driverless cars, you need to connect into an ecosystem. Ford is shutting down Chariot, a ride shuttle service. Being a car maker did not give Ford any specific advantage. If Uber has the best customers, even driverless car makers would like to connect into its ecosystems. Or simply, Uber could buy those cars and put in its network.

 Less than three years after buying the ride sharing shuttle service Chariot, Ford has decided to shut it down amidst a broad cost-cutting effort at the automaker. The commuter van service—operated in 10 U.S. cities like San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, plus London—had provided customers with more than 3 million rides.
