Reporters share experience of Waymo driverless taxi rides

On Monday 21st Aug’23, despite the objections of San Francisco officials who worry the cars aren’t safe, Waymo vehicles began functioning just like paid taxis, minus the driver. For the first time, some people could book rides and pay fares for trips in a Waymo driverless car. Cruise has already been operating a limited paid service around parts of the city.

The New York Times dispatched three reporters across the city to test Waymo’s robot taxis. According to the reporters, the experience can be confusing for a first timer. But the ride was smooth and they were comfortable after a short while in ride. As expected the robotaxi paused for pedestrians and yielded to emergency vehicles.
