Jeff Jones, the president of Uber and it's second in command, is leaving the company. Jones joined Uber at the end of August 2016 to run the company's operations, marketing and customer support .
In a statement on his resignation, Jones said, "It is now clear, however, that the beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber, and I can no longer continue as president of the ride sharing business."
Even in a world increasingly driven by technology, driverless cars sound futuristic and improbable—or, at the very least, miles away. Yet new developments from major automakers, rideshare services and city planners suggests that the driverless car era is nearly road-ready.
