CapMetro To Pilot Courtesy Stops

Courtesy Stop Pilot will be in effect each day after 9 p.m.

AUSTIN, Texas (April 4, 2022) – Starting Monday, April 4,  CapMetro is beginning a Courtesy Stop Pilot Program that will allow customers to request a drop off between regular stops. The Courtesy Stop program will be available on all MetroBus and MetroRapid routes after 9 p.m., and it’s designed to support customers who may otherwise be hesitant to travel late at night by providing them with the opportunity to be dropped off closer to their destination.

To request a stop, customers will inform their bus operators where they would like to be dropped off when they first enter the bus. Customers should also push the stop alert button or pull the cord when the bus is at the stop directly before their preferred drop-off location.

All courtesy stops will ultimately be determined by bus operators, who can decline to make the stop if they determine the requested location is unsafe.
