Capital Metro announced it would start a Courtesy Stop Pilot Program on April 4.

The program will allow customers using MetroBus and MetroRapid services to request stops between regular drop-off and pickup locations, according to a press release.


The program is designed to address customers who might be hesitant to travel after dark by dropping them closer to their destination, according to the release.
