The free ride-hailing service Sprynt is not currently operating and it’s unclear why.
As of this morning (Thursday), Sprynt’s app warns prospective riders that the service is “not currently operating” and “normal operating hours today are closed.”
Similar notices have appeared in the app dating back to last week, and a tipster told ARLnow last Friday (Aug. 17) that the service hadn’t been operating for at least a week. The service offers free rides within set boundaries in Arlington, largely along the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor.
Since launching last June, Sprynt has paused its service once before, from last December through April, when it resumed with an expanded service area. CEO Alex Villanueva did not respond to multiple requests for comment on the service’s current status.
The company’s website remains active, but doesn’t have any additional information on the service’s status. Sprynt’s Facebook and Twitter accounts both now seem to be inactive.
