Minor Bus Service Changes to Take Effect August 25

Route 320 Extended to Provide Service to New Mueller H-E-B 

                                                           

AUSTIN, Texas (August 19, 2013) — Changes are coming to some Capital Metro bus routes on Sunday, August 25, with modifications designed to improve transit access and meet community demand.

Changes taking place on August 25 include a route extension along Route 320 St. Johns to provide service to the new Mueller H-E-B, and schedule adjustments on certain routes to address school year demand.

The service changes scheduled to begin this Sunday include:

Route 320 St. Johns 

To provide access to the new Mueller H-E-B at Berkman Drive and 51st Street, a minor modification will be made along Route 320 St. Johns. Alignment along the existing portion of the route will remain the same, with an extension two blocks east in the Mueller area from Mueller Boulevard to Berkman Drive. Along the existing portion of Route 320, current stops will remain the same, and two additional stops will be added in either direction near the H-E-B. Frequency along the route will be unchanged.

In response to public feedback, Capital Metro reconsidered its original proposal and removed Route 300 Govalle from the August service change proposal. The route will maintain its current routing.

Minor School-Related Schedule Adjustments 

Schedule adjustments will be made on select trips along the following routes, reinstating fall trips to address demand during school year:

    • Route 20 Manor/Riverside will extend to LBJ High School for one trip in the morning (arriving at 8:52 a.m.) and one trip in the afternoon (leaving at 4:19 p.m.) to coincide with the school schedule.  

UT Shuttle Adjustments 

UT Shuttles will transition from summer level to full level schedule. The following shuttle routes will have running time and frequency adjustments:

All changes follow Capital Metro’s Service Guidelines and Standards.

Capital Metro reviews service three times a year, analyzing performance and proposing potential adjustments to improve service by utilizing public feedback collected prior to each change. Capital Metro’s tri-annual service changes coincide with school and university calendars.

Information on the August Service Change, as well as route schedules and maps, can be found in the Destinations schedule book, available for $3 at the Capital Metro Transit Store. The Transit Store is located at 323 Congress Avenue. The guide is also available for download at no cost on the Capital Metro website.
