Pickup Leander is available weekdays between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. We’ve changed Pickup’s service zone boundaries and added the Saturday service last fall. So in addition to HEB and Kohl’s, and a number of Leander schools and parks, you can now use Pickup to go from Bagdad Senior Activity Center to the Hills at Leander apartments, for instance.
