Welcome to Capital MetroBlog

Hi there. Welcome to Capital Metro's blog, Capital MetroBlog. Our hope is to engage the community in a frank, open conversation about public transportation in Austin. We're going for transparency, not perfection, and we hope that you'll join the conversation with your ideas, questions, and suggestions.

It's an interesting time to talk about public transportation in Austin, with $4-per-gallon gas looming, our ridership increasing, and Central Texas' population exploding. It's a dynamic set of challenges for Capital Metro, challenges that the entire community has a stake in. Let's dig in.
