Milo on the go
aseball fans who headed out to the ballpark for the
Texas Rangers opening weekend also had a chance
to check out Arlington’s autonomous shuttle
service, known as Milo.
This free shuttle service was available on a first-come,
first-serve basis before and after games during the four-
day home series.
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. Overall, the City of Arlington has operated Milo
during 91 events combined between August 2017 and
with numerous safety features that prevent it from
bumping into bikes, pedestrians or obstacles on the
The City will soon transition to on-street testing of
autonomous vehicles, with service anticipated to be
available in the Entertainment District for the general
public this coming fall. Milo will be available for rides
through August 2018.

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 Dr.
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
