Tell us a little about yourself!

Hi! My name is Jordan, and I work at a software company in Chandler, Arizona, doing phone tech support.

What do you primarily use Waymo One for?

I primarily use Waymo to go hangout or go to bars with my coworkers. With Waymo, I don't have to worry about driving after a night out; plus, I get to keep my car in the prime apartment parking spot.

What was your first ride like, and what has improved since then?

I was nervous for my first ride, but now, I just call for a Waymo vehicle like I would any other ride-sharing service. Since I started riding, I’ve noticed the car’s interface is more intuitive, and the cars now lets you play music so you don't have to ride in silence.

How do you normally rate your Waymo One rides?

I normally rate my Waymo ride as four stars, or greater, unless the car does something it doesn’t usually do, - when it does, I'll report it in the app.

What’s the most difficult part of driving for you, and how does Waymo handle it?
The most difficult part of driving is reacting to others on the road, and Waymo is usually rather overly cautious, which is a good thing.

Why do you like riding with Waymo? 

Waymo is competitively priced, and you don't have to tip the car. I also appreciate that I don’t have to talk to the person behind the wheel; it makes the ride super pleasant so I can sit back, relax, and use my phone.
