The self-driving car revolution needs . . . rental car companies?

Self-driving cars may be the future, but there are still some things that technology can’t fully disrupt–like oil changes, refueling, and a good old-fashioned cleaning. After all, hopping into a driverless car won’t be so fun if the seat is mysteriously sticky. Waymo, which has pilot autonomous vehicles on the roads in Phoenix, has a partner that takes care of the less glamorous sides of running a self-driving fleet: the rental car company Avis Budget Group, which owns about 580,000 vehicles and 11,000 locations in 180 countries.
