Toyota Research Institute leases space at the Marina Airport to test self-driving cars.

Self-driving cars will soon be roaming around the south tarmac of the Marina Municipal Airport. On Dec. 15, Marina City Council approved a conditional airport use permit for Toyota Research Institute, the subsidiary arm of Toyota based in Los Altos that works on futuristic transportation including artificial intelligence, robotics, and self-driving cars.

“Our fingers are crossed, hoping we can fly into the future,” Marina Mayor Bruce Delgado says. “It’s almost hard to believe, it’s so exciting.”
