Yes. We provide easy-to-use bike racks on all of our full-sized buses. You can also bring your bike on the train.

We have lots more information about bikes in our section on biking by bus and train.
On our buses, look for the farebox, located by the bus operator. It accepts passes, bills and coins (exact change only please).

On MetroRapid, there's a farebox for pre-purchased passes by the back doors. If you want a Day Pass, ask the operator for one before inserting your fare.

For convenience, you can also use our CapMetro App to purchase, store and manage any of our passes. When you board one of our vehicles, just show an operator or fare inspector your pass on the app or scan the QR code (on MetroRapid).
Route 20 Manor Road/Riverside starts at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and operates every 15 minutes, 7 days a week as part of our High-Frequency Network. It then travels along Riverside Drive before crossing the river into downtown. Route 20 passes through the University of Texas campus and turns east to serve Manor Road near the Mueller neighborhood before ending its run on Manor at U.S. 183.

Along the way, the Route 20 provides easy transfers to a number of other High-Frequency routes that can carry you throughout Austin. Use our Trip Planner or the CapMetro App to help guide your travels.

All routes in the High-Frequency Network require a Local fare of $1.25 for a single ride, though if you are going to transfer from route to route, a $2.50 Day Pass will cover you for the next 24 hours. (If you want to ride MetroRail, you'll need a Commuter fare.) The trip to downtown Austin should take about 35 minutes.
