SAN FRANCISCO: Apple and Volkswagen struck a deal late last year that let the technology giant equip VW vans with selfdriving technology to transport Apple employees between offices, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The agreement is part of an internal Apple programme called Project Titan that started in 2015 as an ambitious effort to build an electric vehicle.

After facing development and management problems, Apple shifted its focus to autonomous technologies that control vehicles, Bloomberg News reported in 2016.

The New York Times reported on the deal with Volkswagen earlier on Wednesday. Representatives for Apple and Volkswagen declined to comment.

Apple tests dozens of Lexus SUVs on public roads in California with its self-driving technology, but has also applied the technology to a shuttle service it’s developing to transport staff between office buildings at its Cupertino, California, headquarters.
