Finally. Bay Area next I hope

Alphabet's Waymo on Wednesday launched a significant development in its costly, decade-long quest for autonomous transportation: self-driving taxis that actually generate fares. With little fanfare, the company has begun charging passengers to use its driverless vehicles in a roughly 100-mile (160 km) zone in four Phoenix suburbs - Chandler, Tempe, Mesa and Gilbert - where it has been testing its technology since 2016. Producing revenue is a strategic milestone, putting Waymo ahead of U.S. rivals, primarily General Motors Co's Cruise Automation and Uber Technologies, which have yet to launch their own paid self-driving services.

    1. Why on Earth did you tag Lyft. It was never even mentioned.
    2. It's going to be a really, really long time before it gets too California. The red tape and legal regulations and hoops to jump through are seemingly nearly infinite.
