Alphabet’s self-driving car project Waymo is shuttering its operations in Austin, Texas. The Alphabet subsidiary is removing employees at the facility and says it will offer them relocation to the company’s production center in Detroit, or to Phoenix, Arizona, where Waymo has a fleet of hundreds of self-driving cars. Those who do not wish to relocate will be offered a transition pay package. The move will affect fewer than 10 employees, but an undisclosed number of contractors also worked in the office. The relocations will not affect other Waymo employees around the country.

Austin is where the company says it conducted its first full-self driving route on public roads back in 2015. Most of the employees in Waymo’s Austin office provided rider support and fleet assistance.
