MetroRail Saturday Service to Resume Jan. 11

AUSTIN, Texas -MetroRail Saturday service will resume Saturday, Jan. 11, to all MetroRail stations. It will include three additional trips to serve more customers and extended service hours, with the last train departing from downtown after 7 p.m.

Schedules for the MetroRail Connector bus routes at MLK and Kramer Stations have also been extended to match extra MetroRail service. The  new MetroRail schedule is available online.

Saturday MetroRail service was suspended in June 2019 due to construction on the temporary Downtown Station and to comply with Positive Train Control. The temporary Downtown Station opened Nov. 4, 2019 on-budget and ahead of schedule.

The new  Downtown Station is set to open in the spring of 2021 and is an important component of CapMetro's  Project Connect, a plan for a system of reliable and frequent transit with congestion-proof services.
