Waymo and Self-Driving Cars
Can you imagine cars driving all by themselves? If you have driven around the valley in recent years, you have more than likely seen the Google cars on the road with the roof mounted cameras, working to map out the streets for Google Maps. Now, there is a new breed of cars driving all around town. Waymo, an Alphabet company and the Google Parent Company, has been testing self-driving cars in the east valley for over a year now. Recently, they extended an offer to the general public to catch a free ride in one of their self-driving minivans. You can sign up to be an early rider and per their website, you can help shape the future of self-driving cars. Go to https://waymo.com/apply to fill out an application and if you’re lucky, you can be one of the first people in the country to catch a free ride in a self-driving car! This offer may not last long, so sign up while you can if you want to see a glimpse of the future! Safe travels.
