This research indicates a service application providing citizens unique values when autonomous driving technologies are available as daily mobility and woven into the city fabric. The navigation service Tokyo 27:00 supports young-beings to hang around, drink out, and chill by bar-hopping in night-time metropolitan areas. Users will enjoy choosing the next bar while inside the mobility which generates routes integrating plural possible destinations and displays it as if an arcade on the mobility front-window interface. This paper shows initial user studies with our initial prototype, and reveals findings for potentiality of driverless mobility embedded in a metropolitan city yet to come.
