|Remarks from John Krafcik|
Slower than I expected, but it appears that they are ramping up their fully driverless rides in Phoenix.
After a year and a half of learning from them, we took the next big step in December 2018 by introducing our public ride-hailing service, Waymo One, which now has over 1000 riders who hail Waymo fully self-driving cars via our mobile app.
We’ve been testing at small scale in fully driverless mode since 2017 — with no trained human driver behind the wheel. And we’ve begun to responsibly ramp up our driverless offerings to riders in the Metro Phoenix area.
