The Capital Area Rural Transportation System (CARTS) provides regional transportation for a 7,200-square-mile area surrounding Austin. Its district extends into Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Travis and Williamson counties. CARTS offers fixed-route bus service, non-emergency medical transportation and other services of varying frequency.

Capital Metro partners with CARTS to provide transportation services to riders who live outside of our Service Area. CARTS offers regional and intercity connections, with routes that connect to Capital Metro's service. Those connections allow CARTS customers to travel to and within Austin and elsewhere in the Capital Metro Service Area.
