ARLINGTON - Buses are now on the ground in Arlington as part of a two-year experiment which could lead to expanded service.

The service, known as Metro Arlington Xpress, or MAX, will run on a limited basis and will connect the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) campus with the city's entertainment district and the Trinity Railway Express' CentrePort station.

MAX is a partnership of the City of Arlington, UTA, DART, the Fort Worth Transportation Authority and Arlington businesses. North Central Texas Council of Governments has agreed to reimburse half of the $1.4 million cost during the two-year pilot program through a federal grant.

The City of Arlington, with over 370,000 residents, was the nation's largest city without a public transit system.
