Despite the round of approvals, the company also faced protests of the decision from a handful of organizations and municipalities, including the City of South San Francisco, San Mateo County, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, San Francisco County Transportation Authority, and the San Francisco Taxi Workers Alliance.

The news also comes as Tesla prepares to launch its own robotaxi platform in August, which will be based on its Full Self-Driving (FSD) software.
