Waymo One Shuttle Service Debuts In Phoenix

Description

According to CNN, Waymo debuted its self-driving fleet of minivans in Phoenix, Arizona. But the commercial launch for Waymo One will be limited. For now, Waymo will only allow a few hundred riders to use the autonomous vans. Those riders also helped Waymo test the service as part of an early rider program. During the early rider program, a Waymo employee will be seated behind the wheel to supervise the self-driving shuttles.

  • Waymo Begins Autonomous Taxi Service In Phoenix

    According to Gizmodo, Waymo is now offering rides to the public in self-driving shuttles. Known as Waymo One, the autonomous taxi service is slowly starting to roll-out, but the company is proceeding carefully. For now, Waymo One will only serve the Phoenix-area in Arizona, by allowing hundreds of residents to use the shuttles in an early rider program. People who participated with the service during testing have been given access to a phone app that works like a ride-sharing service. Users simply log-on to the app and request a ride from a Waymo minivan. But the vans are not entirely autonomous right now, because a Waymo employee will be seated behind the wheel to supervise the vehicle.

  • Waymo Launches Self Driving Shuttle Service

    According to Business Insider, Waymo launched its commercial autonomous taxi service. Called Waymo One, the self-driving shuttle service rolled out in Phoenix, Arizona. The service will initially be open for early riders who have been testing the system. Using Chrysler Pacifica minivans, the service will still have a driver in the front seat to supervise the autonomous vehicles. John Krafcik, Waymo's CEO, said that self-driving technology is new to many people, so the company is proceeding carefully with their commercial roll-out.

  • Waymo Unveils Self-Driving Taxi Service In Arizona For Paying Customers

    Alphabet’s Waymo on Wednesday launched a significant development in its costly, decade-long quest for autonomous transportation: self-driving taxis that actually generate fares. With little fanfare, the company has begun charging passengers to use its driverless vehicles in a roughly 100-mile zone in four Phoenix suburbs where it has been testing its technology since 2016. Producing revenue is a strategic milestone, putting Waymo ahead of U.S. rivals, primarily General Motors’ Cruise Automation and Uber Technologies, which have yet to launch their own paid self-driving services. To use Waymo’s service, dubbed Waymo One, riders must download an app and provide a credit card number, similar to ridesharing services Uber and Lyft. A human driver will be behind the wheel, but only to intervene in case of emergency.

    According to the Associated Press, telecom companies AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon recently stated that they won’t provide their customers’ location data to third-party data brokers. A New York Times report in May touched off a major scandal by describing the ways location data, which all four major carriers in the U.S. share with data brokers like LocationSmart, can be abused. This is a good step forward for these companies to make to help protect their customers data.
