Metro Phoenix

Go from the grocery store to your apartment all in a Waymo self-driving car that you can request through your Lyft app. If you’re in an eligible zone within the current service area, it’s yours to enjoy.

Your Lyft app makes it easy to get from downtown to the Arts District to the Las Vegas sign all in a self-driving ride. Just use Lyft within the current service area. If a Motional self-driving car is nearby, it’s yours to experience.

Safety First

To ensure a smooth ride, a Waymo-trained driver sits up front. And because their priority is your safety, they’ll keep interaction to a minimum.

Comfort for up to 4

You’ll get a clean, comfortable self-driving car that can fit a maximum of 4 adults (including yourself).

24/7 support

Have any questions? Contact Waymo’s Rider Support team directly from the car through the contact button on the passenger screen or overhead console.

Safety First

To ensure a smooth ride, a trained operator sits up front for now. And because self-driving cars put your safety first, it may take a bit longer to get where you’re going.

Comfort for up to 3

You’ll get a clean, comfortable self-driving car that can fit a maximum of 3 adults (including yourself). And since the trunk is used for the car’s technology, this ride won’t have space for luggage just yet.

24/7 support

Our dedicated Trust & Safety team is here for every step of your Lyft experience, any time. Contact us on the app, by phone, or via email.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a self-driving ride through Lyft?

From rideshare to bikes to scooters, Lyft is constantly innovating new ways to get around. Self-driving is a new ride type that you can request in select markets. Lyft partners with leading autonomous companies across the country to help you access this new technology, right from your app.

Why is Lyft making self-driving technology available to riders?

In the US alone, traffic collisions kill over 35,000 people a year and 9 out of every 10 crashes result from human error. With self-driving, we’re improving safety, increasing access to transportation, and ensuring everyone has a way to get around, wherever they are. This technology is yet another way Lyft is improving people’s lives with the world’s best transportation.

Will I be able to see what the car sees?

Whether you take a self-driving ride in Metro Phoenix or Las Vegas, every vehicle is equipped with a display so you can check out what the car sees, and view how it perceives and responds to the world around it.

Where can I learn more about the self-driving cars I’d request through Lyft?

Head over to Waymo and Motional to learn more about our partners and their self-driving technology.

Where and when can I experience a self-driving ride?

Right now, you can request a self-driving ride within parts of Metro Phoenix and Las Vegas. If there’s a self-driving ride nearby, it’s yours to experience. If there isn’t one available, you can still get to your destination on time with another Lyft option.

Why are there people in the self-driving car?

All vehicles have trained safety operators up front for a safe, comfortable ride. They constantly monitor the vehicle’s systems and surrounding environment, ready to take control of the vehicle should they need to.

Can I change my destination as I would in a classic Lyft ride?

Right now, self-driving cars require a predetermined route before they can complete a ride. This means you’ll need to provide your pickup and destination in the Lyft app ahead of time. If you need to change either location, please cancel the ride, free of charge, and request another Lyft.

Where can I get help with my self-driving ride?

Lyft’s dedicated Trust & Safety team can assist around the clock through our Critical Response Line. However, if you’re having an emergency, please always call 911 first.
