Innovative Transportation

Arlington has a reputation for recruiting innovative companies and implementing unique technologies in the City for the community.  Because we’re not a member of a transit authority, Arlington has a “clean slate” to pilot new transportation technologies and innovative services. To date, we’ve been:

  • One of the first cities in the nation to offer on-demand ridesharing as a public transportation solution.

  • The first city in the U.S. to offer continuous autonomous shuttle service for entertainment district visitors, with the Milo pilot 

  • The first Texas city to partner with an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft manufacturer, Overair, to develop a vertiport and expand regional connectivity.

  • In 2021, the City launched RAPID, an autonomous vehicle service offered on the UT Arlington campus and Downtown Arlington, fully integrated into the City’s public On-Demand rideshare service, to better meet transportation needs in the core of Arlington.

Arlington Municipal Airport

The Arlington Municipal Airport is a premier general aviation "reliever" airport, offering corporate, cargo, and recreational pilots a full-service destination just seven miles from Arlington’s top entertainment venues like AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Field. Conveniently located south of Interstate 20, it provides seamless access to Fort Worth, Dallas, and a major retail corridor featuring The Parks Mall and Arlington Highlands. The airport is home to 14 businesses and a flight testing facility, with ample opportunities for the development of maintenance facilities and executive hangars. Managed by the city, it includes 56 T-hangars, a maintenance hangar, and 52 tie-down spaces, ensuring top-notch facilities for aviation needs.
