Feb. 6, 2020—Uber Advanced Technologies Group has been issued a permit that would allow the company to put its autonomous vehicles back on public roads in California, reported TechCrunch.

Uber has also started mapping in Washington, D.C., ahead of plans to begin testing its self-driving vehicles in the city this year. Uber intends to launch autonomous vehicles in Washington, D.C. before the end of 2020.
