San Francisco is serving as testing grounds for autonomous vehicles with Waymo, a Google subsidiary and Cruise, a subsidiary of General Motors, logging millions of test miles throughout San Francisco in 2021. On November 18, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) granted the Alphabet-owned Waymo a permit to participate in a driverless program that lets self-driving car companies transport passengers in test AVs without anyone behind the wheel.
