The majority of consumers would rather drive a car themselves than hire a driverless car from a service like Uber or Lyft, according to a new survey.
A minority (14%) of American adults would hire a self-driving car through a service like Uber or Lyft, according to the survey of 1,000 U.S. adults conducted by Rasmussen Reports. Most (75%) consumers said they would rather opt for a car they can drive instead, with 12% undecided.
If a driverless car became available to the pubic at a reasonable price, 67% of consumers said they were not likely to buy one, with 41% of those not at all likely, according to Rasmussen. Fewer than a third (29%) of consumers said they would be likely to buy a driverless car, with 12% of those very likely.
Uber recently announced plans to get its self-driving cars back on the road in Pittsburgh, once plans are approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
