Hop on a MetroRapid to explore various station types, pedestrian and bicycle features, rapid development changes along the bus route, and the city’s downtown transit priority treatment that uses signal technology to ensure the most efficient ride for passengers. The two-line system connects over 80 Austin destinations.
