On May 4, 2023, Waymo expanded the service area of 'Waymo One', a taxi service using fully automated driving cars in Phoenix, Arizona.

With this partnership with Uber, Uber and Uber Eats users within the Waymo One service area will be able to use Waymo's fully automated driving vehicles for dispatch and delivery.

The vehicles to be used will not be newly introduced for Uber, but will be allocated for Uber from existing vehicles.

Waymo co-CEO Tekedora Mahuakana said, 'We're excited to offer other ways for people to experience the fun and life-saving benefits of fully autonomous driving. Uber is driven by humans. Continuing to be a leader in ride-sharing services, Waymo will have the opportunity to reach more people by connecting advanced technology and fully automated driving to Uber's customer network.'

Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber, said, 'Uber provides access to global and trusted markets through mobility, food delivery and freight delivery. We are excited to bring the technology to the Uber platform.'

In the case of dispatch, it can be said that Waymo's fully automated driving car comes instead of Uber's vehicle. You can't come in to pick it up, and you can't leave it at the front door when it's delivered, so it's going to be a bit of a hassle.
