More and more choosing autonomous taxis

Waymo's robotaxi, owned by Alphabet, has now reached 50,000 paid trips each week in Phoenix, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. A year ago, the number was 10,000 per week. The Waymo One service, available 24 hours a day, offers trips without a human driver in the vehicle.

Waymo attributes its success to its focus on a safe and thoughtful approach to scaling up its operations. Instead of developing an autonomous driving technology that works everywhere, Waymo started with a limited area in Phoenix and then expanded step by step.
