The future of transportation could be closer than you think.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey gave a sneak peek Tuesday morning of his special assignment that surrounds driverless cars.

Ryan teamed up with Pennsylvania's driverless car guru Roger Cohen to find out how soon we could be cruising in autonomous vehicles in our area.

Plus, Ryan also checked out some of the most high-tech vehicles on the market that are getting closer to becoming driverless.

Newswatch 16 chatted with pros from Wyoming Valley Audi in Larksville along with RJ Burne Cadillac in Scranton.

The state of Pennsylvania has several resources that explain autonomous vehicles and where the Commonwealth stands on the technology. Click here to learn more.
