Connect with us! We encourage you to get involved and help us deliver high-quality transit service that's truly beneficial to our community.
That's why CapMetro creates programs specifically for you, the public, to share your transit needs and experiences with us. From regional planning to neighborhood bus service, we want to know how to better serve you.
Transportation never stops in Central Texas, neither do we. Learn more and join us as we roll out projects throughout the year, and share your feedback by contacting a Community Engagement staff member at firstname.lastname@example.org.

CapMetro has an inventory of transit advertising space on its vehicles. The goal is to leverage this space to raise awareness for the mission of participating organizations and to support CapMetro's strategic priority for being a valued community partner.
CapMetro will assume responsibility for the design, printing and installation of either full wrap or full-side bus advertisements used to promote the partner's organization. Artwork will feature a co-branded message presented by CapMetro Cares.
Participation in the program is provided to at no charge to the partner. In order to be eligible, organizations must submit in writing a completed application, which will be measured using the following criteria:
- Organization's primary mailing address lies within the CapMetro's service area.
- Alignment with CapMetro's mission, guiding principles and strategic operating plan.
- Organization must demonstrate significant service and impact to the residents of Central Texas.
CapMetro will review applications every 90 days and may select up to two organizations to participate in the program concurrently. Artwork will be placed on vehicles for a minimum of 30 days and may be extended at the discretion of CapMetro based on availability and timeliness. Non-profit organizations may apply for consideration once every two years. If a non-profit organization is approved for the CapMetro Cares program, they must wait one calendar year to apply to the Community Partnership program. Selection of CapMetro Cares partners is at the discretion of the CapMetro. The non-profit organization will assume responsibility for the design, printing, installation and removal of full-wrap or full-side bus advertisements. Artwork will feature the co-branded message, “Presented by CapMetro Cares."
In 2014, the CapMetro Board approved a Vehicle Grant Program to distribute retired rideshare vehicles to the community to increase access to transportation and improve connectivity to CapMetro services. Since then, we have distributed 66 vans to 25 agencies, providing 35,120 trips.
CapMetro is seeking proposals from qualified applicants for the Vehicle Grant Program. The goal of this program is to promote innovative solutions by providing services to address critical community needs as well as increase wheelchair accessible transportation options for people who have limited access to transportation.
The program will offer accessible retired MetroAccess vehicles to successful applicants that provide community-based services and transportation for the community. Vehicle trips provided through this program shall be coordinated as much as possible with existing CapMetro services and other transportation resources in the region.
Vehicles will be distributed to organizations to reach two community goals:
- To meet an unmet need in the community for accessible transportation, such as providing transportation to veterans, seniors, individuals with disabilities, individuals with low income, individuals with limited English proficiency or individuals with limited access to transit.
- To provide support for organizations with innovative solutions to delivering basic needs services such as food, homelessness services, healthcare, literacy or other community-based services.
In exchange for the vehicle(s), recipients will track the type and amount of services provided and/or vehicle trips and will provide a quarterly report to CapMetro for a period of two years. CapMetro will provide the reporting format.
