Autonomous Electric Shuttle


Electric and autonomous vehicles will play a major role in a lower-emissions transportation future.

 

We're partnering with Fairfax County to deploy an electric, self-driving shuttle that will make a loop between the Dunn Loring Metro Station and the Mosaic District in Fairfax County. The shuttle will serve as a first and last mile connection, providing a convenient transit option for shoppers, visitors and businesses. The Relay shuttle will hold up to 12 passengers who can ride for free. It begins operation in late spring 2020! For more information, visit the Fairfax County website.

 

The electric shuttle produces  Zero emissions.
