APD on Board

The next time you’re in a hurry to pass a Capital Metro bus, remember there may be an unexpected passenger on board: a police officer. The Austin Police Department is using one of our buses for its Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) enforcement program. The goal of TACT is to reduce traffic accidents caused by unsafe driving behavior around large vehicles. KTBC profiled the program this week:

Capital Metro has an ongoing partnership with APD to prepare officers to operate buses in the event of an emergency.

    This is excellent news. If they only rode between Cesar Chavez and the Capitol they'd still get plenty of action.
