Alphabet Inc.'s self-driving subsidiary Waymo will put its driverless vehicles on Uber Technologies Inc.'s ride-hailing and food delivery platform later this year.
Uber customers in metro Phoenix, where Waymo operates, will be able to use a set number of driverless vehicles for rides and deliveries, according to a joint blog post by the companies Tuesday.
The multiyear partnership follows Waymo's early May move to expand its commercial driverless service in metro Phoenix to 180 square miles and its coverage area in San Francisco.
Waymo's service now stretches across much of Phoenix and its major suburbs. Previously, Waymo operated in downtown Phoenix and the East Valley. Waymo's expanded service also includes a second pick-up and drop-off location at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed. The number of Waymo vehicles in the Uber fleet will fluctuate, but they will be available via Uber's app at any time for ride-hailing or local delivery, Waymo spokesperson Katherine Barna told Automotive News.
Waymo said its operating area in metro Phoenix will be the largest contiguous area in which a driverless ride-hailing service is offered.
When the integration between Uber and Waymo is complete, users can access a Waymo Driver on the Uber and Uber Eats mobile apps. Riders can also hail a Waymo vehicle directly through the Waymo One app.
