Milestone for driverless vehicles
SAN FRANCISCO – (INT) – The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is clearing the way for California to provide “driverless” autonomous vehicle (AV) passenger service to the public.
Waymo LLC will begin a pilot program in which passengers can ride in a test AV that operates without a driver in the vehicle. Waymo may not charge passengers for any rides in test AVs.
Waymo joins Cruise, LLC as the second participant in CPUC’s Driverless Pilot program.
Waymo may offer driverless passenger service throughout San Francisco and portions of Daly City, as well as in portions of the cities of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Palo Alto, and Sunnyvale.
Waymo’s driverless test AVs may operate on public roadways with posted speed limits up to 65 miles per hour, at all times of day or night.
