California-based autonomous driving firm Cruise has announced that it’s expanding pilots of its robotaxis to Arizona and Texas.

Cruise, which is owned by General Motors, launched driverless rides in San Francisco back in February. The announcement this week marks the first expansion of Cruise’s service.

For its pilot in Phoenix, Arizona, Vogt told the audience at the Communacopia and Technology Conference that Cruise is working with Walmart on a delivery service using self-driving cars.

Cruise’s modified Chevy Bolt electric vehicles will be sharing the roads in Phoenix with self-driving cars from Waymo, which has operated a ridesharing service in parts of the city since 2020.

Rides are set to be free at launch but Cruise plans to start charging for the service soon after launch.
