The exception is MetroAccess vehicles, a service Capital Metro operates for individuals whose disabilities prevent them from riding the agency’s other bus and rail vehicles.
Masks are still required for all customers and staff on all Capital Metro vehicles, according to a news release from the agency. Operators have masks available for anyone who forgets.
Earlier this month, Capital Metro announced that its Red Line MetroRail service would resume running on Saturdays beginning May 29. As Major League Soccer club Austin FC prepares for its first home match June 19, the public transit agency said it will also increase frequency on three bus routes that run near Austin FC’s Q2 Stadium in North Austin.
