AUSTIN, Texas - CapMetro will launch its “Summer Sun, Late Nights and Family Fun” service pilot on Friday, June 8. The pilot includes free rides for kids in grades K-12 and expanded weekend MetroRail service. The program will continue until Sept. 1.

All summer long, kids will ride free of charge throughout CapMetro's service area. The free rides for kids will connect seamlessly to CapMetro's free fares week for Cap Remap and last until Sept. 1.

This pilot will allow all kids to take advantage of free and safe public transportation to explore the region and have better access to summer programs.

In response to feedback from the community and local businesses, CapMetro will also expand its weekend MetroRail service hours for this pilot period. This includes late-night service on Fridays to Leander until 1:45 a.m., expanded hours to Lakeline on Saturdays until 2:30 a.m. and all-day service starting at 10 a.m. on June 9, July 7 and August 4.
