Capital Metro Temporarily Suspends UT Shuttle Service

* * *UPDATE 1/28/2021 - Capital Metro will restart UT Shuttle Service beginning Feb. 1, since UT announced classes will resume in-person that day.* * *

AUSTIN, Texas (January 13, 2021) — Capital Metro will temporarily suspend UT Shuttle service until at least Feb. 1, since the University of Texas announced its plan to move classes online through Jan. 31.

In the announcement, UT said its decision is in an effort to ensure the safety of their community. With the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Austin, the university hopes moving classes online will limit the spread among faculty, staff and students.

Anyone with a valid UT ID can still ride free on all Capital Metro services. This includes faculty, staff and students.
