In the spring of 2021, Arlington introduced RAPID, the nation’s first on-demand, autonomous public transportation service, into its transit network through a partnership with Via and May Mobility. Ever since its launch, RAPID has enabled local residents to experience useful, convenient, and efficient autonomous transit and has enhanced the accessibility of the city’s entire public transportation system.
