Detours

Due to various street closures and downtown congestion, Capital Metro Routes #4, #17, #21, and #22 will be detoured through downtown and will travel along 5th and 8th Streets.



We <3 Bikes

Expect crowded trains and buses during Interactive/Film/Music. When trains are standing room only, bikes are limited to four per compartment (8 total per train). Capital Metro Local buses have racks that hold 2 bikes each, MetroRapid vehicles can hold 3 bikes each. Have a back-up plan in case you can't ride with your bike.


 

Catch us at the Airport

MetroAirport Route 100 offers quick service to/from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) and downtown for
 just $1.75.

Route 100 offers 15-minute frequency to/from the airport. Hours are weekdays 5:30 a.m.-11:30 p.m., Saturday 6 a.m.-11 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m.-11 p.m.

During March 13-22, MetroAirport will make four extra stops on Riverside between Pleasant Valley and Congress. Due to special events downtown, Route 100 will be detoured off Congress and will travel on Guadalupe and Lavaca Streets.
