Currently in pilot, the autonomous Uber-like service lets riders hail cars any time of day or night, as Waymo strives to become one of the first companies to launch a viable fully autonomous capability

Driverless car service Waymo has become known for its safety features and attention to detail. As its technology expands, the company is aiming to become one the first 24-hour self-driving car services.

The company is piloting the service in the Phoenix, Arizona area. While the pilot will initially be limited to people who have signed up for the company's research program, eventually other members of the public will be able to take part. The rides can be booked via app on any day at any time, providing riders an estimated price before coming to pick them up.

For any issues that arise while in transit, riders can contact customer service directly via the app. As retailers and rideshare companies continue to experiment with autonomous service, Waymo is hoping to become one of the first to make it a reality. The pilot began on December 5.
