Self-driving cars are making their way to San Jose.
Jody Kelman, director of Lyft's self-driving taxi program told CBS News that allowing a car to drive is becoming less scary for commuters.
"40,000 people have already done it," Kelman said. "This is becoming incredibly normal for people."
Mercedes' will have human safety drivers in the cars, which will operate between downtown and West San Jose. The goal of the project is to help the company's efforts to develop autonomous technology.
Don't expect to order up a self-driving Mercedes anytime soon, however, as the company says the program will only be open to a select group of users.
