bus_congress_0112South Congress Avenue (SoCo) isn’t just an iconic Austin street, it’s a Texas landmark. Sloping gently down to a view of the Texas Capitol, it’s a grand avenue littered with restaurants, shopping, bars, and events. Not to mention a constant supply of live music. With only a limited amount of time in town, it’s hard to find the best spots — unless we turn it into a game! Join us for a sunset SoCo Scavenger Hunt followed by an American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Social Hour at Guero’s Taco Bar.

Transit Priorities Survey

Help us shape the direction of Connections 2025! We’ve posted a new, brief survey and are looking for input from all Central Texans – riders and non-riders. The survey includes four questions to gauge opinions on some of the tradeoffs involved in a project like Connections 2025. With a limited amount of funding available for transit service, Capital Metro needs to make choices on how to balance competing priorities – for example, is it more important to improve frequency, or provide more coverage within Capital Metro’s service area? See below for examples.
