A part of Capital Metro, MetroRail offers comfortable and reliable passenger service Monday through Friday between the City of Leander and downtown Austin, and from Lakeline to downtown on Saturday. There are have nine convenient stations and three Park & Ride facilities, in addition to many MetroBus coordinated routes to make taking the train fun and easy! The stations are located along the 32-mile line, and all trains stop at each station. If you'd like to drive your car and leave it at the station, use the Park & Ride lots at the Leander, Lakeline and Howard stations.
You can get your ticket or value pass ahead of time - which is recommended - or buy it at the train station. Fares can be bought in advance on their website, on the new CapMetro App, at the Transit Store, and at retail outlets all around town. Be sure to validate your pre-purchased fare at a station validator on the train platform before you board. Tickets and passes purchased from the ticket vending machine at the train stations are already validated.
As a courtesy to seniors and persons with disabilities, the lower-level front seats of the trains are reserved for their use. If all the seats are taken when you get on, you'll find areas in each car where you can stand.
