Lyft and Waymo Have Joined Forces to Make Autonomous Cars

Lyft and Waymo have joined forces in an attempt to bring self-driving cars to the road. The partnership positions the two companies as a major rival to Uber, which is also working feverishly on its own self-driving cars and is in a legal battle with Waymo at the moment.

There was no word on what the Lyft and Waymo partnership will look like. Waymo currently has a fleet of self-driving cars it is testing in Arizona. Lyft doesn't have its own autonomous cars but does have a fleet of drivers and a loyal customer base. Waymo has shown that it's not afraid to publicly beta test its self-driving software. That could mean that in states like Arizona we could soon be seeing self-driving Lyfts on the road next to self-driving Ubers.
