Dubai will be the first international commercial market for Cruise’s all-electric, self-driving, shared ride-hail service after our San Francisco launch.
Cruise is building the world’s most advanced self-driving vehicles to safely connect people with the places, things, and experiences they care about. Since our 2013 founding in San Francisco, we have hired over 1,600 talented individuals and have raised $10B+ in capital commitments from General Motors, Honda, Microsoft, Softbank, Walmart, T.

Through our partnerships with General Motors and Honda, we are a self-driving company with fully integrated manufacturing at scale, building all-electric, zero-emission, self-driving vehicles that will help save lives, reimagine cities, reduce carbon pollution, redefine time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for individuals who live in dense urban settings.
Together, we believe our world-class partners, deep resources, and technology approach of testing in a complex urban environment will help shave years off of our timeline to launch all-electric, self-driving vehicles at scale.
In October 2013, Kyle Vogt founded Cruise in San Francisco to fulfill a childhood dream of making self-driving cars a reality. Kyle participated in the 2004 DARPA challenge and is one of the pioneers of the industry. Dan Kan joined Cruise as a co-founder in early 2014 after successfully selling his previous start-up, E…
We have offices in San Francisco, Pasadena, Bellevue, and Phoenix.
Our cars are primarily testing on the road in San Francisco, CA, navigating some of the most complex and unpredictable driving environments in the United States. We look forward to introducing this amazing technology to more communities soon.
We test our technology in San Francisco because our vehicles encounter construction, cyclists, pedestrians, and six-way intersections up to 47 times more frequently than in suburban environments. We believe this approach will minimize the amount of time needed to safely qualify our cars for commercial deployment.
