Toyota AI Ventures Invests in May Mobility

Feb. 26, 2018

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Toyota AI Ventures has invested in May Mobility, a Michigan startup offering a self-driving micro transit service to communities around the country.

Headquartered in Ann Arbor, May Mobility was founded in early 2017 — and, within a matter of months, had successfully piloted its self-driving shuttle service on the streets of downtown Detroit — giving locals a chance to experience the autonomous future firsthand. The team is now looking to expand to other cities and states, using a fleet of low-speed electric Polaris GEM vehicles outfitted with sensors and May's autonomous driving software.

Together with BMW i Ventures, Toyota AI Ventures co-led May Mobility's latest seed round to jumpstart their expansion plans and help them hire even more talent.
