Vimo extended the autonomous ride to San Francisco.

Wyoming, Google’s self-driving vehicle spin-off, is moving to expand its autonomous ride service to San Francisco.

Wyoming, Google’s self-driving vehicle spin-off, is expanding its autonomous ride healing service to San Francisco.

The company said that through the bay, selected “reliable testers” customers in the city will be able to accept rides in self-driving Jaguar IPS electric vehicles.

Vehicles will now have human backup drivers. But at some point the company intends to drive without them, as it does now in the Phoenix area.

The company said Vimo started the program last week with a few testers and is now expanding it. It will not say how many vehicles are involved or when it intends to pull a human backup.

The outlook is similar to what Vimo did in Phoenix when it launched a limited ride service in 2017. The company says it has provided thousands of fully autonomous rides in Metro Phoenix since October 2020.

People who want to join the program can do so by downloading the Waymo One app.
