Uber's Cars to go Autonomous

Uber is a popular transportation network company, which allows consumers (with an app in their smart phones) to submit a trip request which is then routed to Uber drivers who use their own cars.
Using the Uber app consumers can compare rates for different vehicles and get a fare estimate. Consumers can use PayPal or add a credit card to their secure account so they never need to carry cash.
Uber, headquartered in San Francisco, California, is now set to introduce autonomous cars. As driver is a human, he can’t give his 100% of time for driving. A driver needs time to eat, drink and take rest. They drive when they want to drive, and don’t drive when they don’t want to drive.
Once the Autonomous vehicles are on the road, they are available 97+ percent of the time to service riders (3 percent for gas, inspections, repair, etc.)

CEO Travis Kalanick explained why the act of driving is fundamentally bad. He cited that 30,000 people a year die of car accidents and traffic hurts people’s efficiency. He sees driverless technology as a solution to many of these problems.
But, What happens to Uber’s drivers once cars drive themselves?
In response to this question, Kalanick offered few potential options to assist drivers with this shift, citing “vocational periods, education, and transition periods”. He insisted that “you’ll see Uber working on this way before the transition happens.”
