Waymo has launched Waymo One Trusted Tester program in San Francisco. The research-focused program will allow San Franciscans to hail an autonomous ride in its all-electric Jaguar I-PACE vehicles equipped with the fifth-generation Waymo Driver.
The testers can hail autonomous rides using the Waymo One app anywhere they want to go in initial service area. All rides in the program will have an autonomous specialist on board for now and at the end of the ride the testers will have to share their feedback about the journey.
The company has been active in the city for over twelve years, having accumulated several autonomous driving miles in California. Earlier this year Waymo is offering autonomous rides to employees in the city and then this program was kicked off last week with a select few. Now the company is expanding the program to all interested San Franciscans.
