Why fight traffic on your commute to and from work when you can use the time for something you'd rather be doing instead?

Catch a Rail Connector bus

Take the train to MLK Station and then hop on a Connector bus to take you to the UT campus ( Route 465). At Kramer Station, Route 466 will take you to The Domain or the Pickle Research Campus. Beginning June 3, Downtown Station will be closed for construction temporarily and customers will take a shuttle bus (Route 451) from Plaza Saltillo to 4th and Trinity Streets.

Night rail service

MetroRail trains run late on Friday and Saturday nights. Enjoy Austin's downtown, where there's always something going on, or destinations at any stop along the line. The last train leaves Downtown Station at 12:30 a.m. Friday and midnight Saturday, and trains begin service at 4 p.m. most Saturdays. If you're out even later, check our Late-Night Service.

Beginning June 3, construction for our PTC project will require Capital Metro to discontinue weekend Metrorail service through the end of 2019. Customers taking MetroRail late on Fridays can catch the shuttle bus (Route 451) from 4th and Trinity to Plaza Saltillo.

A guaranteed ride home

If you're worried about how you'll get home in case of an emergency and thus hesitant to take the train, then we've got you covered. The Guaranteed Ride Home program provides registered MetroExpress, MetroFlyer, MetroRail and MetroRideShare customers with a taxi ride home from work in the event of an unexpected emergency. For an annual membership fee of $5, you can register and get reimbursed for up to 4 emergency taxi rides a year.
