Fiat Chrysler and Google's driverless car company have announced plans to launch autonomous riding sharing services in the Phoenix area later this year.

Waymo has been testing some of its self-driving minivans supplied by Chyrsler's parent company in Chandler and the southeast Phoenix area since 2016.

It began allowing the self-driving cars to operate on the road without a human in the driver's seat since October.

The tech company has also done testing in 25 other cities including Atlanta, San Francisco, Detroit and Seattle.

A Waymo official said Tuesday that the company will begin by rolling out its service in Chandler and later expand its service area to a portion of metro Phoenix.

The company did not say when the program will launch or how much the service will cost.
