Unfortunately, the thrill is gone between the two companies, according to a report by The Information, which says that GM is now meeting with Uber to launch those self-driving cars by next year.
There’s been no public announcement of a failed partnership between Lyft and General Motors, nor has there been a press release detailing a new connection between the automaker and Uber. The Information notes that Lyft has launched its own self-driving unit and is working with GM competition. It also points out that GM could launch its own ride-hailing service to compete with both Uber and Lyft. We’ve reached out to GM and will update this post when we hear back. Lyft and Uber both responded with no comment.
