On Monday, the Austin Community College board took one of the last steps to allow Round Rock to place a bus stop on ACC-Round Rock's campus.
On March 23, Round Rock City Council will make a decision on the deal, which would form an agreement between the Austin Community College District and the city.
If approved, the stop would be opened the first week of August and route 50 would make a stop at the ACC Round Rock Campus. The route already connects the campus with the Howard Rail Station and will run from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
ACC board members expressed some concern that buses will not run past 6:30 p.m., when some classes on the campus end beyond that time frame.
"It is important that we convey to them that this was a concern of ours," trustee Sean Hassan said.
Round Rock city staff would manage the transit service, but Capitol Metro would act as the primary operator.
The city will vote to enter into an agreement for five years with the option for the contract to be continued on a month to month basis until the agreement is terminated.
