UTA Parking & Transportation is excited to partner with the City of Arlington, May Mobility, and Via to bring autonomous vehicles to campus and extend campus mobility options into Downtown Arlington. 

UTA students are able to request a trip on the Via app, and if the trip begins and ends within the autonomous vehicle (AV) service zone and within the service hours and the student is using their Via account registered to their @mavs.uta.edu email address, the student can select to be picked up in an AV or traditional driver-driven Via vehicle.  

After a successful 1-year pilot that provided over 28,000 free rides to UTA students, the service has been extended until 2025!  

  • Service hours. RAPID will run from 12pm-6pm Monday to Friday.
  • Ride fares. UTA students are eligible for a $1 discount on all rides without using a promo code — other Via rides will continue to be between $3 and $5 to go anywhere within the Via zone.
