Valley Metro and Waymo are teaming up.

Valley Metro and Waymo have launched a first-of-its-kind pilot program to connect riders with public transit.

Starting at the end of the month, Valley Metro employees will be able to take a Waymo autonomous vehicle to public transit. The plan is to eventually open the pilot program up to other riders.

Scott Smith is Valley Metro’s CEO and joined The Show to talk about the new partnership.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
