A partnership between ride-hailing provider Lyft and autonomous vehicle company Waymo has recently launched in the Phoenix area.

Lyft app users will now have the option to select a self-driving Waymo vehicle for rides in the service area in Chandler, Mesa, Tempe and Gilbert.

KTAR News reports that ten autonomous vehicles will be available for use for the partnership.

Waymo’s partnership with Lyft was first announced in May, and has allowed those outside of the Waymo One and early-rider programmes to take a ride in an autonomous vehicle, likely for the first time, reports KTAR News.
