On November 1st, China’s first autonomous taxi set off for a trial operation period at the Guangzhou Higher Education Mega Center. Despite being equipped with the latest in technology, the driverless taxi will employ the same taxi fare standard as regular taxis.
A fleet of self-driving taxis will undergo trial operations each day from 2 pm to 4 pm and staff from the company responsible for the taxis will be posted at Exit C of the Higher Education Mega Center North metro station and the main entrance of Guangzhou University to help guide the public in using the service.

This new development brings Guangzhou to the forefront of cutting-edge transport technology and means Guangzhou now ranks in as one of the world’s leaders in the automated taxi industry. Residents can reserve the taxi through an app or in WeChat.
