A2GO is free for riders.
The A2GO service brings 4 Lexus RX 450h shuttles and one wheelchair-accessible vehicle (WAMS) to the streets of Ann Arbor. The shuttles operate using self-driving technology, but an Autonomous Vehicle Operator will always be in the driver’s seat to monitor the vehicle’s behavior and ensure safety for all on board.
May Mobility is still requiring that Autonomous Vehicle Operators and riders wear a face mask in accordance with the Federal Transit Administration’s federal mask requirement for transit systems. As the public health guidelines around Covid-19 evolve, May Mobility will continue to make updates in order to provide the best and safest solution for riders and their Autonomous Vehicle Operators.
