In response to the pandemic, CapMetro has worked around the clock to serve the the Austin community and to promote public health. That’s included implementing several measures to ensure the safety of our staff and customers, providing more than 3.6 million trips since the start of quarantine and providing support for vulnerable community members in need.
Staff and Customer Safety
To keep our operating staff and the public safe, we provided staff with gloves, masks and hand sanitizer and required everyone to wear a mask when at CapMetro facilities or riding our services.
Providing Essential Service
- CapMetro provided 3.6 million necessary trips to grocery stores and medical centers for people traveling to work an essential job.
- We served 70,000 critical trips for MetroAccess customers.
- Provided service to more than 250 homeless individuals.
We are so grateful for all of our frontline workers and staff who worked vigorously to serve our community and keep our services safe! We will continue putting the safety of our staff and customers first as we move ahead.
Our partnerships with H-E-B, Good Apple and Farmshare Austin provided nearly 475,000 meals to vulnerable members of the Austin community through June.
