CapMetro to Offer Free Rides for Five Weekends Starting in June

Austin, TX (June 2, 2021) – This summer, Capital Metro is offering free rides every Saturday and Sunday from June 5 to July 4 on most weekend services.

As Central Texans continue their return to what they love by enjoying summer concerts, sporting events and festivals, Capital Metro wants to support the community by offering an easy and free way for customers to connect to people, places and opportunities around the city.

“Austin has many wonderful summer events to look forward to, such as the first Austin FC home game on June 19 and the Austin Symphony’s July 4th Concert and Fireworks at Auditorium shores,” said Dottie Watkins, Capital Metro Chief Operating/Customer Officer. “Capital Metro’s mission has always been to offer safe and reliable transit around the city, and we are so excited to return to what we do best as the community reopens again.”

During these free weekends, customers can ride at no cost on MetroRail, MetroBus, MetroRapid, MetroAccess and UT Shuttles. Capital Metro invites the community to get back to what they love and hopes free rides during these summer weekends can help people to do so.
