About Us

At Cruise, we’re building the world’s most advanced self-driving vehicles to safely connect people with the places, things, and experiences they care about. Self-driving cars will help save lives, reimagine cities, redefine time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for individuals who live in dense urban settings.

Since our 2013 founding in San Francisco, we have hired over 1,500 talented individuals and opened additional offices in greater Seattle, Pasadena, and Phoenix. We have raised $7.25B from General Motors, Honda, Softbank, T. Rowe Price, and others. Through our partnerships with GM and Honda, we are the only self-driving car company with fully integrated manufacturing at scale. Together, we believe our world-class partners, deep resources, and technology approach of “hardest challenges first” will help shave years off of our timeline to launch all-electric, self-driving vehicles at scale.

What is your organization’s official name?


Where are your offices located?

We have offices in San Francisco, Pasadena, Bellevue, and Phoenix.

Why did you choose to test self-driving cars in San Francisco?

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.
