Eventually Self driving cars will cause loss of employment for paid drivers but bring many economic and social benefits.

General Motors and Lyft will test a fleet of autonomous cars that may include the Chevrolet Bolt EV within a year in a step toward eliminating the major cost of operating ride-sharing fleets — the human driver. The plan is still a work in progress, according to Taggart Matthiesen, Lyft director of product.
