Business Insider looks at the driverless bus on the Las Vegas strip. Keolis, the French transportation company behind the project, reports that albeit the distance travelled by this bus is very short, it remains "way more complex than it seems." Also this.

The shuttle only goes 15 miles per hour, which isn't lightning-quick. Keolis' Julien tells me that as they get more confident in the software, that speed could increase, but they're playing it safe for now.
