Waymo One, the 24/7 autonomous ride-hailing service, is going on tour across Los Angeles County, beginning in October and West Hollywood residents and visitors will have a chance hop on a ride from December 17, 2023, through January 7, 2024. Early access tickets are available to take fully autonomous Waymo One rides in LA neighborhoods ahead of a wider service launch.
Starting at beachside in Santa Monica and Venice, the Waymo One Tour will make multiple stops across LA neighborhoods where people eager to experience the future of transportation will have an opportunity to receive a temporary code to try the rider-only service. Chauffeured by the Waymo Driver — Waymo’s autonomous driving technology that never gets distracted, drowsy or drunk — Angelenos will discover new and stress-free ways to explore their city, whether it’s finding hidden gem thrift spots in Mid City, trying a new cafe in Koreatown or catching a concert in DTLA.
During the tour, Waymo will give residents and visitors tickets to ride. Tickets will unlock the ability to ride in the service area of the current tour stop for one week. All rides will be free and available around the clock. Interested riders can get a ticket in two ways:
Attend a pop up: Waymo will be popping up in local spots throughout LA to hand out early access tickets to ride in addition to special tour merch while supplies last. Attendees will also get the chance to learn more about Waymo and ask our brand ambassadors any burning questions they have about our service.
Sign up for the waitlist: If you can’t make a pop up or tickets run out at the events, don’t sweat it. Angelenos can join the waitlist online or by downloading the Waymo One app. While supplies last, we’ll share early access tickets via email with waitlisters who frequent tour stop neighborhoods.
Along the tour, Waymo also partnered with local businesses and community organizations to engage more Angelenos. Tour stops will cover popular LA neighborhoods for a limited time before moving on. Prospective riders on the waitlist should keep an eye on their inbox for more details throughout the tour, but in the meantime, mark your calendars for an exciting chance to experience Waymo One.
