MetroRapid Station Construction
Due to the installation of new MetroRapid stations along Routes 801 & 803, some stations will be closed and customers will need to use temporary stops established nearby during the construction. These projects will last into the spring.
A few of the new MetroRapid stations will open without the full shelter and digital signage that other stations along the line feature. That's because those locations are under consideration for further development through the city of Austin's Corridor Improvement Program and will be under construction in the near future. Rather than construct permanent stations that would need to be removed at that time, these MetroRapid stations will feature MetroBus shelters instead.
Beginning Monday, March 18, the southbound Masterson Station will be closed for 2 weeks during construction. MetroRapid Route 801 and MetroBus Route 1 will serve a temporary stop just south of Masterson station.
A pair of MetroRapid stations will serve South Congress (one northbound and the other southbound), just south of Slaughter Lane. The shelters have been installed at the location already, but the stations will not open until later in 2019 when development at the intersection is completed and sidewalks are built to access the MetroRapid service.
