"Over the past six months, we've worked with Lyft to implement and test a robust destination catalog that helps passengers get to more destinations in cities across North America.

Lyft is taking a 2.5% stake in Argo and, along with Argo and Ford, will start adding robotaxis (with safety drivers) to its network later this year in Miami and Austin, Texas in 2021
