Driverless cars to take people to the store soon

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Some Valley shoppers are getting a glimpse of the future of transportation. Waymo is launching a pilot program later this week in which people will be chauffeured in their self driving cars.

Waymo cars will pick up people who are part of its "Early Rider" program. Those who order groceries online from Walmart will be picked up by a Waymo car, which will bring the the person to the store, where the groceries are packed up and ready to go.

Waymo cars will also deliver people to and from the Ahwatukee Towne Center, and the Element Hotel in Chandler.

The question is whether people are ready to have a driverless car drive them around, and there are lots of opinions out there.

"I think it would be cool," said one woman.

"I don't know yet," said Jennifer Green. "Might wait 'till it is further developed before I try something like that. My husband thinks by the time our kids are grown, we will not drive cars at all, but I am a little more skeptical."

"Why would I let a car drive me when I can drive me?" said one man, identified only as "Mr. Evans".
