When Cruise initially launched its waitlist to join the “Cruise Rider Community” in San Francisco earlier this year, it promised rides would be free at first. In the past, the company said initial rides in Austin and Phoenix may be free with the intent to begin charging for the service shortly after, but a spokesperson told TechCrunch today that Cruise will launch a fully driverless paid service immediately.

Cruise said it would share more updates on the times of day it will run its service in the near future.
