The wait is almost over.
Well, most of you haven’t been waiting that long, but we here at Capital Metro have been working behind the scenes for about 2 years on our new website. We put up a version of the site a month ago to allow you a preview, and we’ve heard some great feedback and worked out a few kinks.
But, in 2 more days, it won’t be “the new site” or “the preview site” or “the beta site,” or any of the names we’ve been calling it all these months. It’ll just be our website. And, we’re excited about that and look forward to you being able to use it full time.
(The site will, however, be unavailable for a limited amount of time during the transfer from old to new beginning Wednesday at 8 p.m. We recommend you use the CapMetro App or call the Customer Service GO Line at 512-474-1200 for all of your trip-planning needs during that time.)
We conducted user experience-based research throughout the development process, and we think it’s a better, cleaner, more informative and a more modern website. We hope you’ll think so too.
You’ll notice that the new site has some really nice new features. Some of these include:
- A responsive design that allows the look and feel to stay consistent while adjusting to various mobile devices with different screen sizes.
- A full range of accessibility features for our customers with disabilities.
- More white space and simplified copy to make finding what you are looking for easier and faster.
- New and improved trip planning features.
In the days and weeks and months ahead, we’ll continue to work on the site, trying to make it better. So, take a look at the preview and get ready for a new CapMetro.org to appear late Wednesday evening.
