Capital Metro is Austin’s regional public transportation provider. We’ve been around since 1985 and work every day to give residents, commuters and visitors the best possible transit options available to match their busy everyday lives.
Capital Metro connects people, jobs and communities by providing quality transportation choices to Central Texas. Created in accordance with Chapter 451 of the Texas Transportation Code, Capital Metro was established by a voter referendum on Jan. 19, 1985. The agency is funded in part by a 1 percent sales tax levied by members of its service area.
