Public transportation users in Washington, DC, can now hitch a ride on a self-driving, 3D-printed bus.
Olli, created by Arizona-based Local Motors, officially hit the streets of the nation’s capital Thursday. Using an app similar to Uber or Lyft, ride-seekers can order the bus to pick them up and drop them off at their destinations of choice.
And it gets better. Olli is electric-powered and 3D-printed, reducing the vehicles footprint before and after it hits the road, Local Motors wrote in a release. The bus can even talk to riders.
“Olli offers a smart, safe and sustainable transportation solution that is long overdue,” John B. Rogers Jr., Local Motors CEO and co-founder, said.
