Milo travels on select off-street paths in the Entertainment District during major events at Globe Life Park and AT&T Stadium and during scheduled public demonstrations of the technology.

Heading out to the ballpark to root for the Rangers this week? It's also a great time to check out Arlington's autonomous shuttle service, known as Milo.

Milo will be operating in the Entertainment District for the Texas Rangers' Opening Day, which starts at 2:40 p.m. Thursday, as well as the team's Friday, Saturday and Sunday games against the Houston Astros. This free shuttle service, available on a first-come, first-serve basis, will operate for approximately one hour before and one hour after the baseball games.

What is Milo?

Arlington is leasing two electric, 12-passenger shuttle vehicles from EasyMile as part of a one-year pilot program to explore autonomous transportation technology in a real-world setting. The wheelchair-accessible shuttles operate before and after major events at AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park as well as during public demo rides that occur approximately once a month. In cases of severe weather, the shuttles may not operate.

These low-speed, battery-operated shuttles follow a pre-programmed route along a section of the concrete trail that runs through the Richard Greene and Robert Cluck linear parks. Passengers are picked up and dropped off at designated stops along the trail.

Because of ongoing construction of the $250 million Texas Live! entertainment complex and the future Globe Life Field, the Milo shuttle route is currently using the section of trail near the Caelum Moor sculpture north of Randol Mill Road and west of Globe Life Park.

Signs along the route instruct walkers, joggers and others sharing the path to keep their distance from the moving shuttles. But even if someone or something were to stray into a Milo's path, the vehicles are outfitted with numerous safety features that prevent it from bumping into bikes, pedestrians or obstacles on the trails.
