LAS VEGAS >> Ride-hailing service Lyft is partnering with an automotive technology company to deploy a fleet of 30 self-driving cars to the streets of Las Vegas this summer.

Lyft and Aptiv will run the self-driving BMWs between the same predetermined sites that the companies used during a successful demonstration at the International Consumer Electronics Show in January, the Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday.

The BMW 5 Series cars will navigate passengers between the Las Vegas Convention Center and various resorts on the Strip.

Las Vegas is working with Aptiv to extend the routes into downtown, said Michael Sherwood, the city’s director of technology and innovation.

The companies are planning a start date for July or August, Sherwood said.
