Uber ditches California: Left-wing regs push Uber to GOP-led state https://t.co/swmpPGNiyW via @JCPuddles— Red Alert Politics (@RedAlert) December 24, 2016
“California may not want you; but AZ does! @Uber,” tweeted Doug Ducey, Governor of Arizona. “Here in #AZ we welcome this kind of technology & innovation! #ditchcalifornia #AZmeansBIZ.”
Uber quickly moved its operations from San Francisco to Phoenix, Arizona. The company plans to expand its self-driving pilot there. All of the modified Volvo XC90 self-driving cars arrived via a self-driving semi on December 23rd. The ride-sharing company has received a very warm welcome and an outpouring of support from both city and state officials.
