Waymo will expand robotaxi operations to LA next
Google’s Waymo driverless ride-hailing service is expanding operations to Los Angeles, California.

Waymo has not yet specified a timeline for when the rides will start – just that Los Angeles will be next in line.

It’s a major announcement, given the size and scope of LA driving, which is more complex than both Phoenix and San Francisco.

Waymo operates a fleet of self-driving electric Jaguar I-PACE vehicles – these currently serve the public in Phoenix, Arizona, and are being tested by employees in San Francisco, California. These vehicles have no driver, whether in the vehicle or remotely – they run purely on sensors and can be used by the public in Phoenix with no NDAs or predefined pickups through the Waymo One app. The company is currently looking for “Trusted Testers” in San Francisco: nonemployees who can help test the next phase of their rollout.
