A driverless electric shuttle took its first load of passengers a few hundred meters down a route in a rural section of the Netherlands. WePod shuttle is hoping to operate a fleet of the robotic vehicles in the area in the coming years.

The story doesn’t tell you if the driverless shuttle has exclusive use of this path, which would be interesting to know, noting other vehicles in the background. I also looked at the expression on the face of the man in the blue official jacket, but it could be that he is telling people about the consequences of not paying their fare. But seriously, there are likely to be many routes that are pretty safe and connectors, like the driverless train that has been running at Narita airport between terminals for over 25 years make a lot of sense.
