Waymo has been very active in Phoenix. I see their cars all over central Phoenix every day. We have straight roads and plenty of sun so pretty ideal operating conditions. I’m sure they will quickly expand the service area based on how many test runs they are making all across Phoenix. We have the Super Bowl here in 2023 and I bet they use that to show off their service.

Yeah I’m trying to figure out what new here. I first rode in a driverless Waymo as the sole occupant of the van a couple years ago.

I think this is about having more that are driverless. They've been mostly using passive drivers for safety and analysis up to now.

Doesnt matter honestly. Fucking uber takes forever to find a driver in DC.
