Driverless Shuttle to Start Testing
Dunn Loring Metrorail Station to the Mosaic District
Fairfax County and Dominion Energy are partnering to launch an autonomous electric shuttle, known as Relay, that will operate between the Dunn Loring Metrorail Station and the Mosaic District in Fairfax County. It will be the first test of driverless public transportation in the D.C. region, and it’s also the first state-funded autonomous transportation project in Virginia. In Summer 2020, the shuttle will be on roads around the Mosaic district undergoing testing. A public launch date and other service details will be available soon.
As part of its strategic plan to grow and diversify the economy, Fairfax County continues to encourage innovation and testing of smart technologies to help expand existing business sectors, spark new business growth, nurture the innovation ecosystem, and strengthen partnerships with technology experts, researchers, educational institutions and policy makers.
