Coming Soon! Increased Frequency on Select Bus Routes

It’s not unusual for Capital Metro to make changes to its bus and rail service; it does so three times a year in order to improve overall service. Often these are minor tweaks to existing routes, but this time commuters are getting something even more exciting: increased frequency on certain routes.

What this means for you is less time waiting and more flexibility in getting to work. Don’t fret if you miss your bus; the next one will be along soon! The goal of the high frequency routes is to make the bus more convenient for riders; riders on those routes will be able to know that, at a maximum, their bus will arrive in 15 minutes. Combined with the real-time departure information, Capital Metro is hoping those service changes make riding the bus easier and more stress-free.

Starting on June 7, Capital Metro will establish high-frequency service (15-20 minutes during peak time, 20-30 minutes during other times) for the following routes:

  • 7 Duval/Dove Springs
  • 20 Manor/Riverside
  • 300 Govalle
  • 325 Ohlen
  • 331 Oltorf

Here are some details on the June service changes:

On weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Routes 7, 300, 325 and 331 will run every 15 minutes; Route 20 will run every 20 minutes. From 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., routes will operate every 20 minutes. Those routes currently operate every 20-30 minutes – or greater – during midday hours, so the added frequency will mean much less waiting for bus riders.

In addition, Capital Metro will start a new route, #237, for the Loyola area, and will increase service to the H-E-B Mueller via Route 37 and realign Route 271 to better serve Del Valle residents. Read more about the changes here.
