Lyft to send its own self-driving cars out on the country’s biggest test track

The ridesharing company will test its technology at GoMentum Station, the former U.S. Navy weapons station in Concord, California, which features some 20 miles of paved roads around a private, 5,000-acre site.

Commenting on the partnership with GoMentum, Lyft’s vice president of engineering, Luc Vincent, said his company believes “in a future where self-driving cars make transportation safer and more accessible to everyone,” adding that the deal allows it to “test our self-driving systems in a secure facility and advance our technology in an efficient way.”
