News from the Sky: Autonomous Vehicle Service Provides a Sustainable Way to Phoenix Sky Harbor

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport

If you’re interested in a hassle-free and sustainable way to get to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, you may want to consider catching a ride using Waymo’s fully autonomous vehicle service.

Rides are available 24 hours, seven days a week in Waymo’s fully electric Jaguar I-PACE equipped with the fifth generation Waymo Driver. Pickups and drop-offs occur at the 24th St. PHX Sky Train® Station, as well as the 44th Street PHX Sky Train Station where travelers can hop on the free PHX Sky Train and quickly get to Terminals 3 or 4. Trains arrive and depart every few minutes.

Reserving a ride to use the service is easy. You simply download the Waymo One app and start riding.

You may recall that the service launched in December when Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego arrived at the 44th Street and Washington PHX Sky Train Station via a Waymo vehicle.

This set a global milestone as PHX became the first airport in the world to offer travelers the ability to take a Waymo autonomous vehicle as a means of transportation to and from the airport.

At the time of the launch, Waymo announced that it doubled the Waymo One service area in Downtown Phoenix. The expansion connects the airport service to a large swath of the downtown area, offering safe and convenient mobility options to Phoenicians and travelers alike.

Last November, Waymo began offering its Trusted Tester participants the opportunity to take autonomous rides to and from downtown Phoenix and the airport with an autonomous specialist in the vehicle. Waymo has removed the autonomous specialist from the vehicle, and anyone can hail a Waymo to ride between the airport and downtown Phoenix.

This new service comes two years after Waymo opened its fully autonomous commercial ride-hailing service, Waymo One, to the public in the East Valley of Phoenix; and it builds on the company’s strong partnership with the City of Phoenix.
