Cruise to double workforce

General Motors said earlier this week that its self-driving car subsidiary, Cruise, is planning to double its workforce in size over the next nine months, as part of preparations to launch a robotaxi service by the end of this year.

A Cruise spokesperson declined to give precise numbers, but it should be around 1,000 people as that is the number of people currently working for the GM daughter.

Cruise is also planning to triple its office space in San Francisco.
