MetroRail suspended between Lakeline and Leander
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 by Katy McElroy
The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority will be performing service work on the length of track between Lakeline and Leander next week, and therefore the agency is suspending all MetroRail service between those stations from June 15 to 29. Capital Metro’s press release announcing the suspension suggests the following alternatives for daytime travelers:
- MetroExpress No. 985, which has weekday service from 4:50 a.m. to 10:50 p.m. between Leander, Lakeline and downtown
- MetroExpress No. 987, which goes to UT and downtown with weekday morning service (southbound, 5:20-8:50 a.m.) and early evening service (northbound, 3-7:10 p.m.)
In addition, on June 15, 22 and 29, a complimentary Friday evening shuttle will provide riders with a connection between the Lakeline and Leander stations. The shuttle buses will run about every 20 minutes from 5 p.m. to 1:25 a.m.
