Cruise, GM’s autonomous-vehicle arm, showed off video of its first driverless ride in San Francisco last week. The company recently began offering the journeys in its Bolt-based autonomous cars to company employees and other invited guests in the city.

Company President Kyle Vogt was the first to hail a driverless ride last week and shared thoughts on the experience on his social channels.  He hailed the service six times that night, documenting each ride. The company plans to eventually let members of the public hail its rides on an app.
