Need a ride to the Pecan Street Festival?

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Anyone planning to attend the Pecan Street Festival this Saturday, May 6, will be glad to know the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority is extending MetroRail service hours for the first day of the event. Service begins with a 10:20 a.m. southbound departure from the Kramer Station. Then, beginning at 11:08 a.m., the rail will run every 34 minutes. The last northbound train departs at midnight. The agency warns passengers that it will be a busy day, and therefore wagons and non-folding strollers are prohibited. (Collapsible strollers are welcome.) Unfortunately, the offer is only good for Saturday, since the train does not operate on Sunday.
