What is Waymo One?

Waymo One is our autonomous ride-hailing service, currently offering fully autonomous rides with no human driver in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona, and testing in San Francisco, California, through our Waymo One Trusted Tester programme. In fact, the beginning of October 2021 marked the one-year anniversary of Waymo opening up the Waymo One rider-only service to the public in Phoenix. To date, Waymo One has celebrated tens of thousands of trips, thousands of riders and hundreds of thousands of miles driven autonomously. As the first and only fully autonomous ride-hailing service, we’re looking forward to bringing Waymo One to more people in the future.

Why did Waymo decide to launch this service?

Our mission at Waymo is to make it safe and easy for people and things to get where they’re going. Waymo One was built to provide a safe, reliable and altogether better way to get from point A to B. Freeing people from the stresses of driving, Waymo One offers a space for people to make the most of their commuting time, from catching up on a book in-between running errands, to getting some work done on the way to the office.
