The City of Arlington will be launching its two new $272,000 Milo autonomous shuttle busses Saturday Aug. 26 at AT&T Stadium in time for the Dallas Cowboys’ preseason game with the Oakland Raiders.

The two French-made shuttles will operate on select off-street trails in the Entertainment District before and after major events at both AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park. The rides will be free of charge for the 12 riders in each vehicle.

The self-driving electric vehicles are being leased by the City from EasyMile, a company based in France, as part of a one-year pilot program exploring autonomous transportation technology. The vehicles were first demonstrated at the Arlington Convention Center last February.
