Austin is beautiful, weird and full of music – but it’s also full of traffic. To alleviate traffic congestion, and encourage people to think about alternative ways to commute, Mayor Adler has called on people to join him in a one-day initiative on Wednesday, May 11, called “Austin Don’t Rush.”
To show our support for this initiative to take thousands of cars off the road, Capital Metro is offering FREE RIDES on all its services May 11.
People can ride MetroBus, UT Shuttle, MetroRapid, MetroExpress, MetroRail, MetroAccess or MetroAirport for free – ALL DAY LONG.
Why should you take transit? There are so many benefits – like getting back some of your time to do other things since you don’t have to drive, saving on gas, expensive parking and helping ease congestion.
Our free CapMetro App makes it easy to plan your trip, access real-time departure information, and conveniently buy and use passes – right on your smartphone. And many of our services offer free Wi-Fi to make your trip even more productive or just plain fun.
To accommodate expected crowds on May 11, Capital Metro is increasing frequency on MetroRail to approximately every half hour. Along with MetroRail, we encourage you to ride MetroRapid or MetroExpress if you haven’t tried it yet, or any of our other convenient services.
We’re making it easy – So, c’mon and take a FREE RIDE!
