Attention All Southwest Austinites: your commute just got easier!

CapMetro new routes map 171-and-111Do you live in Southwest Austin? Are you tired of fighting Mopac traffic twice daily? Want to save gas money? Are you interested in a bit more free time? Well do we have some news for you! CapMetro has recently announced service changes to make saying yes to all of the above easier than ever!

CapMetro is now offering a new commuter route from the Circle C area in to Downtown and UT. The 111 will run as far south as Escarpment giving many Austinites the chance to let someone else do the driving. See the full 111 schedule here.

Additionally, CapMetro has increased service to the commuter route that serves the Y at Oakhill area (Rt 171) due to high demand from commuters in these neighborhoods. The 171 is such a wonderful option that it became overcrowded! Now that CapMetro responded by adding more service, there’s room for everyone to ride!

These great new routes caught the attention of KEYE. See their story here with a cameo from Ridescout’s very own Joseph Kopser, who actually rides the 111 and provides daily check-in’s @Ridescout.
