Remember that if you need immediate assistance (where’s the bus?, the bus is late, etc.) or need more space than 140 characters, your best bet is probably to call the GO Line at (512) 474-1200. Another option is to send an email. The more details you can provide, the better job we can do at helping you.
OK, here’s a sample of tweets from the past couple of weeks. It’s by no means a complete list, but a decent sample nonetheless:
Furthermore, Austin residents, you should always take the @CapMetroNews 21 bus around 11am from campus. NICEST bus driver I ever met.
@CapMetroNews your board shoulda been on the 320 at Comal/6th. Driver did a FANTASTIC job maneuvering back from a lost semi. We all clapped!
@CapMetroNews Thanks for the virtuosic bus-driving highlights reel. I think many of your drivers have super-hero super-powers.
On @CapMetroNews red line using wifi on the train. Not to bad
@capmetronews brought it this morning. One of the nicer buses I’ve been on. Cushioned seats. More like an airplane than a bus on here.
great first experience on the @CapMetroRail this morning… clean, modern feel… efficient access to the Capitol… so many helpful ppl too
successful afternoon of capmetro commute planning for the new gig. metrorail primary + 101 secondary = no more I-35 sitting
@CapMetroNews I’m not feeling this uncomfortable 982 bus and its crowded!
tried Metrorail this morning. Was OK, but I can do the commute more quickly and safely with the good old-fashioned 101 bus.
I love CapMetro! Always on time! #sarcasm
@CapMetroNews Bus 8903 blocking the box at 9th and Congress. Not cool.
@CapMetroNews. Rates go up and service quality degrades? Still no sign of the southbound 10 bus and its already 20 min late.
@PunkSoda agreed. They need to fire Capmetro and hire an agency that responds to the city. (More sxsw service, more acl busses) etc.
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could go to the @CapMetroNews website and see where each bus is at via GPS tracking of some kind?
Note: Neighborhood parking can be a (worthwhile) challenge, but the Capmetro # 22 bus drops off right at Maplewood…
Is thankful, but wishes @capmetrorail would run 7 days. Public transit in chitown actually works all week long
@dustindonham give it time, go for a ride & tell your friends. @capmetro’s working it out.
Casually mention I take @CapMetroRail 2 work on occasion. Result: Look of surprise on lady’s face. “We have a train? When did we get that?”
Drats! Guess everyone else decided to take the same Mopac detour. This is when I wish I had taken @CapMetroRail.
CapMetro OKs adding Cedar Park bus service http://tf.to/XHr
Cap Metro to people: Stay off tracks for your own safety
