We now have self-driving buses out in the wild in Helsinki

Self-driving buses have been used for the first time on public roads in Helsinki, Finland.

The driverless vehicle can carry up to 9 passengers but is currently restricted to speeds of 6.2mph during the testing phase.

The tests are part of the city’s plan to make car ownership obsolete within a decade, according to CNN Money.
