The New York Times called Arizona the state where self-driving cars go to learn.”  Thanks to the leadership and vision of state and local officials, as well as the investments of companies like Cruise, Nuro, and Waymo, Arizona has a growing self-driving industry that is delivering jobs and economic growth.

Arizona has become the home for testing of self-driving vehicles, and Governor Ducey today updated his 2015 executive order to advance our state’s position as a national leader for the development on this technology while continuing to protect public safety.”

By leading other states, Arizona is poised to reap a disproportionate share of the billions in economic growth and investment this new industry will bring.”

Technology that has the potential to not only save customers time and money but also be helpful to the planet is technology we want to learn more about,”

The pilot program shows how autonomous driving technology like Waymo’s could be used in the future to complement existing public transportation programs and expand mobility for paratransit riders.”
