The shuttle is called “TEDDY,” which stands for The Electric Driverless Demonstration in Yellowstone.

The new service started Wednesday, offering short rides from a lodge area to nearby shops and restaurants. TEDDY can seat eight people.

The shuttle will be free for about six weeks, which will help the National Park Service see how the technology can be used in parks.
