Ford Motor Co. and Argo AI will launch a limited robotaxi service on ride-sharing company Lyft’s platform beginning later this year, the companies announced Wednesday.

The initial deployment of the service in two cities — Miami later this year, and Austin next year — marks a significant step on Ford’s path to launching a commercial autonomous-vehicle business.

The project brings together Ford, Argo AI — a Pittsburgh-based autonomous-vehicle technology company in which Ford owns a stake — and the No. 2 ride-sharing service in the country, Lyft.
