Kroger has officially taken its autonomous delivery pilot partnership with Nuro to Houston.
After announcing the expansion in March, Kroger is now offering the service with its South Post Oak store, with availability at the Buffalo Speedway store coming later this spring.
Like the first pilot market in Scottsdale, Arizona, Kroger and Nuro are starting the service with Nuro's manual and self-driving Toyota Prius fleet, and will introduce the next generation of Nuro's custom driverless vehicles later this year.
"We're excited to launch our autonomous vehicle delivery pilot with Nuro in Houston, a leading city that embraces innovation and technology," says Marlene Stewart, Kroger's Houston division president. "Kroger continues to redefine the customer experience, and we're thrilled to provide our customers with a new way to have their groceries delivered. We thank Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, and the Houston community for being terrific partners and for supporting consumer-focused robotics."
Orders can be placed seven days a week and can be scheduled for same-day or next-day delivery for a flat $5.95 fee with no minimum order.
