Waymo and the California Department of Motor Vehicles announced Tuesday that the Golden State had approved a permit for the self-driving-car company to drive in a handful of Silicon Valley cities.

Those cities include Palo Alto, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Sunnyvale, and Alphabet’s home city of Mountain View.
