Waymo, which started as the Google self-driving car project in 2009, is ready for the next phase. Starting now, Waymo’s fully self-driving vehicles — the most advanced self-driving vehicles on the road today — are test-driving on public roads, without anyone in the driver’s seat. And soon, members of the public will get to use these vehicles in their daily lives.

After more than eight years of testing and development, we're ready to unlock the potential of fully self-driving technology, so we can make it easier and safer for everyone to get around.

This week, we officially reached three million miles of self-driving on public roads — the equivalent to traveling to the moon and back six times! With this real world experience, along with our billions of miles of simulated driving, our cars are safer and more capable.

It took our team just seven months to reach our third million miles (by comparison, it took about six years to hit our first million!). We’ll keep on accumulating more miles, even quicker, as our 600 self-driving Pacifica minivans hit the road. And the most exciting part of our next million self-driving miles? We get to share them with our early riders in Arizona, who are using our self-driving vehicles to commute to work, head to school, and go out for a night on the town.

After moving from Brazil, Priscila and Victor had to juggle their busy schedules sharing one car. Waymo’s early rider program has given them more flexibility in getting around town, from commuting to work, to going to church, to exploring their new city. Priscila and Victor are helping our team learn how people want to use a self-driving car in everyday situations.

Meet two more of our early riders, Amy and Paul. They love to travel, rock climb, and attend concerts. Since they began participating in Waymo’s early rider program, they've had more time to enjoy their favorite activities (who wants to waste time having to circle the block for parking?).

If you live in the Phoenix area, apply to join Amy and Paul and learn more about our early rider program: waymo.com/apply

Candace, Ted and their four kids are some of the first people in the world to take part in Waymo’s early rider program—the first public trial of our self-driving vehicles. This family has been using our self-driving cars for their everyday travel. Now, you can, too.

If you live in the Phoenix area, apply to be an early rider and use our self-driving cars to go to places you frequent every day: from work, to the grocery store, to the movies, and more. You’ll play an important role in shaping self-driving technology.

Say hello to Waymo—the next chapter of the Google self-driving car project! Waymo stands for a new way forward in mobility. After 8 years at Google, we're stepping out today as an independent self-driving technology company.

Over a year ago, we invited an old friend, Steve Mahan, for a ride. Steve had ridden in our cars in the past—first accompanied by a test driver in 2012 and then on a closed course in 2014. This time was different. Steve experienced the world’s first truly self-driving ride on public roads, navigating everyday traffic with no steering wheel, no pedals, and no test driver. This ride is just the beginning of what Waymo hopes to bring to the world.
