Starting in March 2021, the City of Arlington’s RAPID service provides autonomous vehicle (AV) rides in Downtown Arlington and on the University of Texas at Arlington’s (UTA) campus. With grant funding from the Federal Transit Administration and by partnering with Via TransportationMay Mobility, and UTA, the City is offering one the country’s first on-demand AV services, linked with an existing transportation service. Using the Via app or by calling 817-784-7382, you can select an AV ride within the service area and test out this innovative technology!

Effective July 5, 2021, May Mobility will be removing the partition between the Fleet Attendant and rider for the RAPID service. We will still require that Fleet Attendants and riders wear a face mask in accordance with the Federal Transit Administration's federal mask requirement for transit systems. As the public health guidelines around Covid-19 evolve, we will continue to make updates in order to provide the best and safest solution for our riders and Fleet Attendants.
