Capital Metro and Formula 1

F1 Logo

Formula 1 is returning to Austin Nov. 15-17, 2013. In addition to F1, the University of Texas football team will be in action on Nov. 16, and Capital Metro will be ready to provide service to both race and football fans alike, as well as Austinites just looking to get around town. We’re here to help.

Use the Capital Metro Trip Planner to get to the Austin Convention Center where the Circuit of the Americas shuttle service will take fans to the racetrack.

MetroRail Boarding

Expanded MetroRail Service

Capital Metro operates a 32-mile commuter rail service called MetroRail, with nine stations extending from downtown Austin north to Leander.

In addition to our regular local bus, late night and rail service, Capital Metro will offer expanded MetroRail service during the Formula 1 weekend. MetroRail trains will operate:

  • Friday, Nov. 15: 6 a.m. – 12:30 a.m. (Saturday morning)
  • Saturday, Nov. 16: 8 a.m. – Midnight (Service to all stations except Leander)
  • Sunday, Nov. 17: 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. (Service to all stations except Leander)

MetroRail's route is divided into two fare zones. Your trip costs $1 if you stay within one zone, or $2.75 if you cross the fare zone boundary between Howard and Kramer stations.

You can buy a MetroRail pass at ticket vending machines on station platforms or at the Transit Store, open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Transit Store is located downtown at 209 W. 9th Street.

Schedules for Friday - Sunday, Nov. 15-17.
