CapMetro to suspend MetroRail service Thanksgiving week

CapMetro will be suspending MetroRail service next week to continue construction and projects on the line.

Service will be suspended from Saturday, Nov. 19 to Sunday, Nov. 27 so the transit agency can complete the Lakeline/Leander double-tracking project and continue construction work on the McKalla Station.  

During the suspension, CapMetro will be operating a shuttle to serve Leander, Lakeline and Howard stations before heading to Downtown Station:

Shuttles will not be available on Sundays or Nov. 24-25 due to Thanksgiving holiday service levels.

CapMetro will also offer alternative bus service from all MetroRail station locations to take riders downtown, although not directly to Downtown Station:

CapMetro will also be operating a system-wide reduced Sunday-level of service on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24. There will be no MetroExpress, Pickup, UT Service, Night Owl or MetroRail shuttle service on Thanksgiving Day.

There will be a normal Sunday-level of service for the day after Thanksgiving, but Pickup will also be available.
