The city of Arlington launched a new commuter bus service Monday morning.
The Metro Arlington Express or MAX now runs between College Park on the University of Texas at Arlington campus and the Trinity Railway Express Centre-Port Airport Station.
The buses run Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. They leave ever half hour during peak periods and every hour during non peak periods.
The MAX is part of a two-year pilot program. After that the city will evaluate the service and look at the number of riders and demand before considering expansion plans.
"I can tell you that this is a pilot project and that we've made no decisions. In fact we have no hard figures to prove one way or another. This is our first endeavor as you've already said and we're excited that we can do this. And in two years we'll evaluate that decision then," said Kathryn Wilemon, Arlington's mayor pro tem.
Arlington had been the largest city in the country that did not have regular mass transit.
