RAPID vehicle in Downtown Arlington

The future of automobile technology is set to arrive in Arlington this March. Now, the City and May Mobility want your help naming one of the new self-driving shuttles.

Everyone is welcome to submit ideas through Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021. Submissions must begin with the letter M and cannot be longer than 20 characters, including spaces. Click here to submit your ideas.

Community members will select a winner based on the top three choices. The person who submits the winning name will receive a special preview of the self-driving technology. The name will also be displayed inside the shuttle. The winning name will be announced March 23, 2021.

Looking for Inspiration?

  • The RAPID autonomous vehicles will serve Downtown Arlington and the UTA Campus. 
  • The other shuttles in Arlington's fleet will be named Mojo, Molly, Morocca and McHale.
  • The RAPID program is a partnership with Arlington's Via rideshare service.
