(Newser) – Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Friday welcomed the arrival of a fleet of Uber self-driving cars delivered via a self-driving truck that transported them from California. Ducey's office says the governor welcomed the truck carrying the self-driving Volvos at the State Capitol in Phoenix. Uber announced Thursday that it was shipping the cars to Arizona after they were banned from California roads over a lack of required permits, the AP reports. Uber made the announcement after Ducey promoted Arizona as an alternative to California for the ride-hailing company to test its self-driving cars. Uber has not announced when the cars will be tested, nor provided details about how many vehicles arrived in Arizona. Uber previously had 16 self-driving cars registered in California.
