Manor Park & Ride Grand Opening this week

Manor Park & Ride MapWe’re cutting the ribbon – literally – on another major milestone with the grand opening of the new Manor Park & Ride. Come on out to the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15, and help us celebrate this fabulous new facility.

Amid the backdrop of the storied Manor water tower (of Leonardo DiCaprio fame in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape), the new park & ride provides parking for 68 cars and 4 bicycles and includes two pedestrian shelters for the #990.

As an appreciation to our customers, we’ll be at the new facility starting bright and early on the 15th from 5:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. to greet passengers and hand out light refreshments and other goodies.

The 9:30 a.m. ceremony will include Capital Metro board members, President Watson, Elgin Mayor Mark Holm and Manor Mayor Jeff Turner, in addition to Manor and Elgin community members and riders.
 

 

Shorten your (single occupancy) commute; catch a bus at Tech Ridge Park & Ride

Northeast Travis County residents will have improved access to Tech Ridge Park & Ride when newly constructed segments of Heatherwilde and Wells Branch open this week. Both Travis County roadways will include sidewalks and bike lanes.

Tech Ridge Park & Ride serves as the northern terminus for routes serving the busy North Lamar/South Congress corridor (#1L/1M and #101), East Austin (#135), and UT/Downtown (#935). It also facilitates many transfers as the endpoint for Routes #243 Wells Branch and #392 Braker.
