Whether it’s your morning coffee or a cold beverage on a hot summer day, sometimes you need to bring a little refreshment on the bus or train as you travel from Point A to Point B.
Well, to set the record straight, you can bring your nonalcoholic drink on Capital Metro – as long as it’s in a closed container and you don’t consume it on the bus or train (read: PSF or Potential Spillage Factor). But don’t fret, you’ll have that iced hibiscus mint tea ready to go when you get to your stop! To help you find the perfect approved container, we’ve listed three local stores, all reachable by MetroRapid 803, where you might also be tempted to shop for some other amazing finds!
ATown – 5502 Burnet Road, MetroRapid 803
ATown has a great selection of unique gifts and funky t-shirts, plus you can shop from a selection of refreshing, one-of-a-kind refillable water bottles. Why not buy one for yourself and one for a friend? No one should ever drink alone.
Blue Elephant – 4001 N. Lamar Boulevard, #510, MetroRapid 803
You’ll find Blue Elephant nestled in the Central Market Shopping Center on North Lamar. In addition to a great selection of women’s clothes and accessories, they also have fun household goods and gifts. Get a stylish water bottle that will not only be a conversation piece but also the envy of your fellow riders!
Breed & Co. – 718 W. 29th Street, MetroRapid 803
This Austin staple is not your typical hard-edged hardware store. Sure, you’ll find tools, but you’ll also discover exquisite gifts and home goods – even fine china – at Breed’s. Pick up an insulated canteen and fill it with iced coffee to enjoy at your destination.
