Discussion: New Bus Stop Signs

Capital Metro is in the beta testing stage of a new sign for our bus stops.

Please take a look at this sign and tell us what you think of it.

Thank you for participating in our service change forum! To learn more about what service changes are and how they are developed, please check out our quick video.

The proposed changes are in accordance with Capital Metro’s Service Guidelines & Standards and are based on recommendations from Service Plan 2020, our 10 year plan for improving bus service.

The proposed changes will improve bus and rail service while increasing the efficiency of the system. The changes should result in increased ridership on rail and bus without an increase in costs. 

More people are choosing to use MetroBus on the weekends, and Capital Metro is responding by increasing service on our busiest route.

More central Texans are also deciding to take advantage of Capital Metro Rail service during peak commuting times – so much so that many rush hour trips are standing room only!  Capital Metro is responding to this increased demand by making schedule changes to provide additional rush hour trips in both the morning and afternoon.  These additional trips are made possible through schedule efficiencies, and are not projected to increase operating costs.  We expect that this change will make MetroRail even more convenient and continue to increase ridership.

Proposed changes will have no impact on the service area for MetroAccess

Why we are proposing thse changes: 

The proposed changes are in accordance with Capital Metro’s Service Guidelines & Standards.The proposed changes will improve MetroBus service and ridership while increasing the efficiency of the system. The proposed changes would result in a small overall increase in MetroBus service hours, and would have a minor impact on the MetroAccess service area. More people are choosing Capital Metro’s Night Owl as an option for late night transportation, and Capital Metro proposes to adjust and realign these routes to increase frequency and efficiency.

In response to recent changes made by the Federal Transportation Administration, Capital Metro has proposed policies that will allow the transit authority to examine the impact of major service changes and fare changes to minority and low-income populations. The policies formalize what Capital Metro already does in practice.

Capital Metro seeks public comment on these policies. Attend an open house, or, if you can't attend, you may also call Roberto Gonzalez (512) 369-6035, email feedback@capmetro.org, or participate in our service change policy proposal forum. Please click through our easy-to-navigate forum and provide your feedback and comments on specific proposals no later than Monday, May 13, 2013. The board will consider adoption of the policies on May 20.

Discussion: Fare Study

V3_rg_rail_pay

Capital Metro is working hard to respond to Central Texans' desire and demand for more transportation choices and alternatives to driving alone. In order to sustain and grow transit service, Capital Metro is conducting a study to evaluate our current fare structure, and develop recommendations for how we might improve that structure.

The revenue generated from fares is an important factor ensuring that Capital Metro continues to be a sustainable, efficient and financially responsible agency that can continue to meet the transit demand in our region. Currently, Capital Metro's base fare is among the lowest in the nation and the portion of the cost to operate our service that is recovered through fares is also low. Developing a fare structure that is simple to use and easy to understand is also important for continuing to grow ridership. This study will help enable Capital Metro to deliver on its promise to our customers and taxpayers to provide effective services that meet the Austin area's transportation needs.

For more infomation on the fare study, please visit our Community Involvement Page.

If approved, the proposed changes would take effect in February 2014. The Capital Metro board of directors will review the proposal at its November 13 meeting.

V3_fy2015_proposed_cover_thumb

Each year, Capital Metro invites riders and other central Texans to offer feedback on our proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. We believe that this year's budget reflects Capital Metro's commitment to efficient operations and high-quality transit options for our community. 

For background information on how we develop our budget, we recommend watching this webinar. The video describes the process behind our agency's budget development, as well as the context for our plans at Capital Metro for Fiscal Year 2015. More information, including a copy of the FY2015 Budget Book, can be found here. This site also describes further opportunities to provide input at our public hearing, open houses, and an additional webinar. 

Capital Metro is seeking feedback on recent changes to local service with the launch of our 801 MetroRapid route. Prior to beginning service on January 26, our planners and community involvement team hit the streets to inform riders about the changes to local routes, including the 1L, 1M, and 101. In these conversations, we heard many riders anticipate how these changes will affect their commutes.

Now that MetroRapid is becoming a regular sight on Austin’s streets, we want to continue hearing from you. We are seeking feedback on your experiences so far, as well as ideas about how rapid and local service can improve to meet the needs of riders in the North Lamar and South Congress corridors.

For example, several people have suggested that stations with only place names, such as Republic Square, also include a street number, such as 4th Street, on their signage.

We are interested in constructive ideas such as these that could assist in easing the transition to a transit system with multiple service categories. Looking ahead, Capital Metro is launching another MetroRapid service, Route 803, late this summer. Please tell us about your experience with these recent service changes, so that we can incorporate these lessons into our planning for 803.

As a part of Capital Metro’s tri-annual service review process, we are proposing minor changes that would be effective August 2015. These service proposals would serve primarily as adjustments to changes implemented in June 2015. Additionally, the proposed August 2015 changes are designed to address school year demand and create a more efficient transit system.

Capital Metro routinely makes changes according to school and university calendars to accommodate ridership. Select school-related trips would be reinstated on E-Bus, UT Shuttles and some Local routes.

The proposal will go before the Capital Metro board of directors on April 27. If approved, the changes would take effect Sunday, August 23, 2015.

Capital Metro invites ongoing feedback year-round about overall service and we meaningfully incorporate customer input in the service change development process. We are dedicated to meeting the public transit needs of the Central Texas area and understand first-hand the need to relieve congestion on our streets and provide quality transportation options to our fellow citizens.

Capital Metro is reviewing service to make it work even better. Help us shape the future of bus service by sharing your feedback this March.

The proposed changes for June 2015 are designed to provide more frequent bus service and expand service while maintaining system efficiency. The proposed service would increase trip frequency along five Local routes, provide new bus service to the Loyola area, increase service to the H-E-B Mueller via Route 37, remove the Merrilltown Loop along Route 243 and realign Route 271 to better serve Del Valle residents

The proposal will go before the Capital Metro Board of Directors on March 23. If approved, the changes would take effect Sunday, June 7, 2015.
