Catch an Easy Ride to UT Football Games with Capital Metro

Transit service to DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium offers alternative to gameday traffic

AUSTIN, TEXAS - With the first University of Texas home football season starting again this Saturday, Capital Metro reminds Longhorn fans that transit provides alternatives to gameday traffic congestion and high prices for parking. Capital Metro also offers a safe ride home after a fun day at the tailgate.

We have six routes that  operate every 15 minutes, seven days a week serving the UT campus: Routes 671018801 & 803. Two of those routes (Routes 7 & 10) will  operate on a detour on gamedays. Customers may catch their bus at any Capital Metro bus stops along the detoured route.

A bus pass costs $1.25 one way/$2.50 round trip and can be purchased on board or with the  CapMetro App. UT students, faculty and staff ride for free with a valid school ID. Students 18 and younger with a school ID ride at a reduced rate, and children five and younger accompanied by an adult ride for free.

Capital Metro also offers MetroRail service on Saturdays from 4 p.m. until midnight, with easy connections from MLK Station to the stadium area via Route 18 MLK/Enfield. A one-way trip on MetroRail costs $3.50, and a Day Pass $7.
Fans can plan their trip using the Capital Metro online Trip Planner, the CapMetro App or by calling the GO Line at 512-474-1200.
