Transportation - The Verge clock menu more-arrow no yes


Everyone needs to get around. How we do it will change more over the next decade than it has in the last century. Verge Transportation shows how legacy automakers are scrambling to become technology-savvy companies and how the tech industry is trying to cash in on the change. We call out the new players that are disrupting the industry and those that stumble. We look at how self-driving hardware and software make the automobile better or, in some cases, deeply flawed. We cut through the hype and empty promises to tell you what's really happening and what we think is coming. Verge Transportation cares about all moving machines and the place they have in the future.
