Learn more about MetroRapid

A conceptual design of an articulated 60-foot MetroRapid bus. The new service will include 22 sixty-foot buses and 18 forty-foot buses.

Capital Metro recently learned we will be receiving a total of about $37.6 million from the Federal Transit Administration to bring a new mode of transportation to Austin. Capital MetroRapid will be a swank, speedy bus service that uses technology to keep traffic lights green (or to turn a traffic light from red to green) to allow the bus to cruise along its route.

But what is it all about, and how does it work? We’ll answer those questions and many others during a one-hour free webinar tomorrow, from noon to 1 p.m. Register to attend here. Vice President of Planning Todd Hemingson and MetroRapid Project Manager Ken Cartwright will give an overview of the MetroRapid project, including the routes planned, the amenities onboard and at the boarding stations, next steps/timeline, etc. A full 25-30 minutes will be reserved for an interactive Q&A. Type your question into the webinar interface, and the presenters will answer as many as they can.

Get involved (from the convenience of your computer)! Register to attend the free interactive meeting.
