General Motors Co.’s Cruise Technologies subsidiary tells Reuters it expects to double its 1,000-member workforce in 2019.

The expansion comes as the autonomous-car startup prepares to launch a shuttle service by year-end that uses self-driving vehicles.

Cruise says most of the 1,000 new hires will be engineers. The company, which is headquartered in San Francisco, also expects to triple its office space there.

Former GM President Dan Ammann took over as CEO at Cruise on Jan. 1. His primary mission is to scale up and commercialize the company’s business, currently valued at more than $154 billion.
