The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey reportedly plans to test self-driving buses over the next year to help ease traffic in bus lanes.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the agency is looking to invest $5.3 million in a pilot program.

They say it could reduce traffic on the 2.5 mile stretch between the New Jersey Turnpike and the Lincoln Tunnel.

The new technology would not replace drivers, but it would reportedly help them merge into the bus lane, better space out vehicles and reduce or avoid collisions.

That move could potentially add an additional 200 buses, about 10,000 riders, to the morning commute.

The Port Authority board members are expected to vote on the proposed pilot program by the end of the year.
