City officials in the Korean capital Seoul have approved self-driving passenger cars for the first time. The Seoul metropolitan government announced three self-driving vehicles and one bus will be operating in Sangam-dong, a district in the west of the city, as part of a pilot program. The vehicles are scheduled to transport passengers from the railway station in Digital Media City to nearby apartments. Vehicles can be hailed using the app TAP! and take travelers to requested stops. Rides are planned to be free for the first month, with AV buses costing $1 and AV cars $2.50. Private firms operating in the area have the option to reduce fares.
