Edmunds warns of a tough 2019 for US auto industry as sales slide for second time since Great Recession and Profits Shrink

A select group of Chandler city employees won’t have to drive to and from off-site work meetings for the next year. In fact, no one will be driving at all, thanks to a partnership with the autonomous vehicle company Waymo.

The program kicks off this month and will serve as a test-run to evaluate employee productivity and savings in fleet service costs. And despite recent issues with self-driving cars in the Valley, Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke feels the program is completely safe for employees and residents.
