Route 214 Northwest Flex will start serving the Austin Community College Cypress Creek campus tomorrow morning. Earlier this evening, the ACC board approved an interlocal agreement that will allow us to serve the campus.
The route already passes by the campus. With this new deal, ACC will pay Capital Metro $19,224 to cover the one year operating costs to stop at the campus since it’s outside our service area. Throughout the year we and ACC will evaluate the performance of the route so we can plan for the future. ACC credit students and employees can use their Green Pass to ride.
You may recall that we had originally planned to have the new and improved 214 make four stops in Cedar park, including at the ACC campus, based on our Service Expansion Policy. But the Cedar Park City Council didn’t approve the agreement.
