 Elon Musk has been the face of innovation lately and the ideas are not stopping anytime soon.  He recently unveiled his plans for a Tesla Ride-Hailing App.  The app would rival current ride-sharing apps such as Uber and Lyft.  Elon explains that the app would leverage the autonomous driving feature of the Tesla.  When Tesla owners aren't using their vehicles they could add their car to the Tesla network to be used as a taxi.  For areas with not many Tesla drivers, there would be designated vehicles assigned to the areas.  There would be many advantages to a Tesla Ride-Hailing App; one being, the cars are electric so the cost per mile would be lower than a regular gas vehicle.  Another advantage is that a driver would not be necessary.  Check out the footage below of Elon Musk explaining the ride-hailing service in more detail.  Would you trust an autonomous taxi to get you from point A to B?
