Phoenix residents can now experience Uber Eats delivery with the Waymo Driver

Starting today, there’s another way for people in Phoenix to get food delivered from some of their favorite restaurants.

As part of our ongoing partnership with Uber, Uber Eats consumers may be matched with the Waymo Driver, and have their meals delivered by a fully autonomous Waymo vehicle within our 225+ square mile Metro Phoenix service area. 

We’re excited to bring another application of the Waymo Driver to more people and local businesses in Metro Phoenix — the world’s largest autonomous vehicle service area. To start, we’ll work with select merchants in Chandler, Tempe and Mesa, including local favorites like Princess Pita, Filiberto's, and Bosa Donuts.

How to order with the Waymo Driver

When placing an order in our Phoenix service area, Uber Eats consumers will receive an in-app prompt that says, “autonomous vehicles may deliver your order.” They will have the opportunity to opt-out during checkout, if delivery by a human courier is preferred.  

After placing an order, Uber Eats users will be notified if they’ve matched with a fully autonomous Waymo vehicle. When the vehicle arrives, customers will receive instructions to take their phone with them to open the vehicle’s trunk and collect their items.

Introducing more people to the benefits of full autonomy

Since launching our Metro Phoenix ride-hailing partnership with Uber, we've powered tens of thousands of trips on Uber through the Waymo Driver and our autonomous driving technology.

We’re excited for this next stage of our partnership with Uber, and to extend the benefits of safe, convenient, all-electric autonomous driving technology to Uber Eats consumers and businesses in Phoenix. If you’re in Phoenix, we look forward to serving you soon!
