Capital Metro changes coming, probably
Friday, March 31, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority is thinking about making some changes this summer. Is that OK? Specifically, the transit authority is contemplating increasing the frequency of MetroRapid service and adding late-night service on weekends. Capital Metro is also considering its practice of adjusting routes for when the University of Texas is in session. The agency is soliciting feedback through online webinars at noon and 6 p.m. on April 3 and noon on April 11 (details here), public hearings at Manor City Hall on April 5 from 5 – 6 p.m. and Capital Metro Headquarters on April 12 from noon to 12:30 p.m. And, in an attempt to get information from more riders, next week Capital Metro representatives will “make appearances” at various MetroRapid stations to explain the proposed changes. In addition, Austinites can provide feedback by emailing Feedback@capmetro.org or tweeting @CapMetroATX. Details about all the changes are available online here.
