Unlike San Francisco, where robotaxis have no one inside, the Scottish buses will have a 'safety driver' ready to grab the controls in an emergency. As we operate in some of the densest parts of San Francisco, we interact with active emergency vehicles day and night. 'We are concerned that if autonomous vehicles are allowed limitless, driverless operations in San Francisco, that traffic impacts grow exponentially.
