UPDATE: Apple has the second highest number of self driving cars after GM Cruise, which as 104 vehicles, as of now.

In the beginning of 2018, the figure was 27 cars, and at the start of the tests - only three, according to TechCrunch.

Apple has 83 safety drivers taking part in this project who will be supervising the vehicles. In addition to California, Waymo tests its cars on public roads in Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia. Waymo has 51 cars in the state, but also has 338 registered drivers. By March of this year, the company had 45 cars on the road. Waymo, for example, used to have over 100 self-driving cars in the state before moving part of its fleet to Arizona and MI, where additional testing is now taking place.
