During the South by Southwest Music Festival, the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority is providing a variety of enhanced bus and train services. MetroRail service is extended to 2:30 a.m. through Saturday, March 19, with free shuttle service available between the Leander and Lakeline MetroRail stations through Friday, March 18. MetroRapid service operates on its normal schedule today but will be extended to 2:30 a.m. over the weekend (Friday-Saturday, March 18-19). Late-night transit options are available on the Night Owl and E-Bus routes (details are available here), and downtown shuttle service to and from the airport is running every 30 minutes (more information is available here). Finally, there are several detoured bus routes all around downtown. For more information on this and other Cap Metro service changes, go here.
