The safety and well-being of our riders, employees, partners, and the community is our top priority.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we are working closely with external organizations to provide support to the local communities we live, work, and operate in.
We’ve proudly donated to local organizations including the AZ Coronavirus Relief Fund, Give2SF, and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. We’ve also increased our employee donation matching given these unprecedented times.
Our hardware and supply chain teams have helped source, manufacture, donate, and distribute thousands of items of PPE -- including masks, face shields, and other supplies -- to hospitals in need.
Leaning on their experience building safety-critical systems, Waymo engineers and program managers are supporting these institutions in their efforts to develop less-invasive, lower cost ventilators for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
We stand behind our Let's Talk Self-Driving partners in our joint goal of improving mobility for everyone.
We are supporting FSL in covering the cost of food supplies and transportation to ensure home-bound seniors have the meals they need. Please consider donating here.

As our on-the-road operations ramp back up, we continue to drive our technology forward with our work in simulation. In simulation, we can keep learning from each of our 20 million autonomous miles on public roads, prepare for rare edge cases, explore new ideas, validate and test new software, and continue improving our rider experience.
