Uber begins offering rides in self-driving Waymo cars

Starting today in Phoenix, customers who request a ride on the Uber app have the option to be matched with a fully autonomous vehicle following Uber’s partnership with Waymo, which was announced in May.

Once the Waymo vehicle arrives, riders will be able to unlock the vehicle and start the trip using the Uber app. If assistance is needed, riders will have access to 24/7 customer support, accessible in both the Uber app and inside the Waymo vehicle.

The rides will be the same price as the traditional car rides Uber offers.
