Lyft has completed more than 5,000 self-driving rides through its ride-hailing app, the company said on Tuesday, as it aims to become a serious competitor in autonomous driving while its biggest rival, Uber, retrenches.The autonomous driving system is not built by Lyft, however, but by high-tech auto-parts supplier Aptiv Plc, which Lyft partnered with earlier this year.Aptiv has a fleet of 75 self-driving cars in Las Vegas, 20 of which are picking up Lyft passengers.Lyft's chief rival, Uber Technologies Inc, has meanwhile retrenched from its self-driving ambitions.Last month, Uber ended its work on self-driving trucks.
