Pony.ai’s Sienna-based Robotaxi approved for paid services in Guangzhou

January 15, 2024 - Leveraging Pony.ai's proprietary ride-hailing platform, PonyPilot+, and GAC Group’s OnTime ride-share platform, the Robotaxi is now available for paid services in the area. Users can summon the latest generation Robotaxi through the PonyPilot+ and OnTime ride-share apps, enjoying a secure, comfortable, and convenient autonomous driving experience.


The upgraded model enhances the Robotaxi service experience, providing a more spacious and comfortable ride. Passengers can control air conditioning and lighting through rear-row control panels and, in emergencies, contact the customer service center via the control panel or the in-car SOS physical button. The operational range covers the entire 803 square kilometers of Nansha district, Guangzhou, with service periods from 8:00 to 22:30, including rush hours.


Jointly developed by Pony.ai and Toyota, 15 of the GAC Toyota Sienna Robotaxis had been included into the OnTime ride-share platform. It marks the second vehicle in Pony.ai's collaboration with OnTime, following the successful operation of the Lexus RX Robotaxi, which employs Pony.ai’s fifth-generation system, receiving widespread acclaim from users over the past few months.
