Waymo is about to offer driverless rides

Are you ready to hail a cab without a driver?

The future is closer than we think it is.

Waymo, the self-driving unit of Google that will soon offer ride-sharing, has provided a sneak peek into one of its future service offerings, has sent out emails to some customers, telling them that they might be getting driverless cars when they hail a ride from Waymo.

A screenshot of Waymo's email to customers was posted on Reddit.

On its email, Waymo hinted that "completely driverless Waymo cars are on the way."

Waymo went on to explain how the highly advanced service works.

First, a customer books a ride then gets matched with a fully driverless car. If they are matched with cars that don't have riders, users will be informed via a notification that the car won't have a trained driver.

A "What to expect" button will also pop up when matched with a driverless vehicle. By clicking the button, customers can read more about driverless vehicles. For customers who require assistance during any part of their trip, they can contact a rider support agent.

Waymo stressed that the driverless vehicles will allow riders to experience a car all to themselves.

The tech company has yet to reveal the information on any of its social media pages, as well as on its website.

The leaked email on Reddit comes about three months after Reuters reported that Waymo is working on adding WiFi connectivity in its self-driving minivans. At the time, the news outlet said the service was to be piloted in the greater Phoenix area in Arizona.
