Our vision is to be a driving force for quality life in our community.

We strive to live that vision every day.

Capital Metro is Austin's regional public transportation provider. We've been around since 1985, and work every day to give residents, commuters and visitors the best possible transit options available to match their busy everyday lives.

We're always on the move, connecting people with jobs, schools, restaurants, shops, festivals and other great places to hang out. In fact, we have more than 31 million boardings every year.
