Two Republicans on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee are slated to take to Facebook on Wednesday to talk about what it’s like to be in a driverless car.

Bob Gibbs of Ohio and Larry Bucshon of Indiana, will be online for the Q&A at 2 p.m. Wednesday to talk about the ride as well as transportation technology innovations.
