Waymo’s fully self-driving vehicles are here

With Waymo in the driver’s seat, fully self-driving vehicles can transform the way we get around

Two years ago, we completed the world’s first fully self-driving trip on public roads, when Steve Mahan, who is legally blind, traveled from a park to a doctor’s office without anyone in the driver’s seat. This ride offered a glimpse into a fully self-driving future?—?where roads are safer, commuting is less stressful, and everyone can get around, regardless of driving ability. Since that ride, we’ve been working to bring fully self-driving technology to more people, in more places.

After more than eight years of development, we’re taking the next step toward unlocking the potential of fully self-driving technology. Starting now, Waymo’s fully self-driving vehicles?—?our safest, most advanced vehicles on the road today?—?are test-driving on public roads, without anyone in the driver’s seat. To date, Waymo vehicles have been operating on public roads with a test driver at the wheel. Now, in an area of the Phoenix metro region, a subset of our fleet will operate in fully autonomous mode, with Waymo as the sole driver. Over time, we’ll cover a region that’s larger than the size of Greater London, and we’ll add more vehicles as we grow.
