Introducing Cruise for Good
The holiday season is the time for giving, and Cruise gives back to San Francisco year-round. Cruise is an all-electric self-driving car service coming soon to SF. While Cruise's autonomous vehicles have driven millions of miles to learn the city streets, Cruise also dedicates 1 percent of its fleet to important community needs, like delivering thousands of meals with the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank and SF New Deal.
