The self-driving shuttle will make three stops each way, while 'driving' at speeds of 10-15MPH. The city of Las Vegas have installed wireless sensors into traffic signals, which will help the self-driving shuttle coordinate its route as its driving on the streets.

AAA have promised to donate $1 to the Las Vegas Victim's Fund for every passenger, with a minimum $100,000 pledge, which will incentive people to jump on-board.
