August 2024 Service Changes

CapMetro makes planned changes to our service three times a year to improve your riding experience and respond to shifts in how our customers use the service.


To meet the needs of customers and efficiently use our resources, we are adjusting a UT Shuttle route, transitioning to school service on bus routes and making other minor adjustments. These changes will be implemented on Sunday, August 18. There is a proposed amendment to these changes involving Pickup Leander that will go to the CapMetro board for approval in June.

We have recorded a presentation on the service changes. View the video here.
Please share any comments, concerns or suggestions at feedback@capmetro.org


Combining UT Shuttles

To increase accessibility, connectivity and better fit the needs of the community, we will consolidate UT Shuttle Route 640 (Forty Acres) and Route 641 (East Campus) into one expanded campus circulator with frequency increased to every 10-minutes.

Pickup Leander Expansion

CapMetro is continuing to work closely with the City of Leander in an effort to propose a 0.64 square mile expansion in the southwest corner of the current Leander Pickup Zone. This proposed expansion includes popular destinations such as DaVita Leander Dialysis, Cedar Park Regional Emergency Center, Crystal Falls Crossing Apartments, Lakeline Apartments and Randall's. To ensure customer satisfaction, CapMetro staff will closely monitor ridership, wait times and the overall customer experience to understand trends and mitigate any challenges as the expansion is rolled out. If approved, this change would take effect on Sunday, August 18, 2024 and be available to provide service to customers on Monday, August 19, 2024 with the CapMetro fall service change. For more information, view the proposed expanded Pickup Leander zone map.

School Service Schedules

We will begin our normal transition to school-level service on UT Shuttle routes as well as select bus routes with seasonal school trips.


Minor Schedule Adjustments

To improve on-time performance and reliability, select Bus routes and Rail schedules will be adjusted. 

To optimize performance on Pickup, we will make minor boundary adjustments to four zones (East Austin, Dessau, Walnut Creek and North Oak Hill).
