Waymo Self-Driving Taxis Heading to Atlanta

Waymo’s expansion is set to continue after the company revealed plans to test its self-driving taxis in Atlanta, Georgia, this summer.

The news was confirmed by the firm, owned by Google parent Alphabet, in a post on X, where it said it would be continuing its process of evaluating how its autonomous Waymo Driver tech “generalizes to different environments and new experiences.”

Its arrival in Atlanta follows winter testing in Buffalo, New York, and spring assessments in Washington D.C., as part of what it calls its cross-country road trip program…

Initially, a handful of self-driving taxis will hit the road, operated by humans and not available to the general public. These will be used to amass mapping data and get familiar with the local environment.
