Pickup customers will be able to request rides directly using a phone app. The cost per trip will be $1.25, the same as a single bus ride.
Similar to other ride-hailing services, Pickup will pick up customers where they are and drop them off at their chosen destination. Rides may involve other customers.
The four pick-up service zones include:
- St. David's, which is roughly bordered by MoPac, Scofield Ridge Parkway, Lamar Boulevard and Braker Lane;
- Rogge, which is roughly bordered by Berkman Drive, Wheless Lane, Manor Road and East 51st Street;
- Exposition, which is bordered by Lake Austin Boulevard, MoPac and West 35th Street;
- and Johnston Terrace, which is roughly bordered by Springdale Road, Webberville Road, US 183 and East Seventh Street.
In the meantime, Capital Metro is seeking public input from area neighborhood associations and residents to help determine the service's hours of operations and zone names.
