Self-driving bus starts first route in Germany

The electric vehicle delivered its first passengers on Wednesday in Bad Birnach, Bavaria, starting on its eight-minute route from the town’s hot springs to the central area and the railway station. The EZ10 bus has six places to sit and can take in a further six standing passengers, and the ride is free of charge.
It’s the first time a self-driving bus has been incorporated in Germany’s public transport system.
