I would be so down for that!!!! IH 35 is the only way to get to San Antonio from Austin without going way out of the way using SH 130 or US 290 to US 281. I would LOVE to not have to drive to San Antonio. It's too short to fly, no flights anyway. Bring it Amtrak, take my money $$$! Now if we could get China to build a CRH line in 2 years that would be better.

"Cap Metro, fighting ridership slump, nears an overhaul of bus system"

http://www.mystatesman.com/news/tran...2ADEVDRJNAFMM/

  • With ridership off 10.8 percent since 2013, the agency could be eliminating 30 of its 80 bus routes.
  • Forty-six other routes would have changes, including more frequency, and 14 new routes are planned.
  • The agency’s board will consider system makeover in late February, with most changes to occur by 2018.

Capital Metro takes delivery of more Stadler DMUs
23 Mar 2017







USA: Stadler has delivered two more GTW 2/6 diesel multiple-units to Capital Metro in Austin after a one-month journey from its Bussnang factory in Switzerland. After being carried by ship to the port of Galveston, the trains completed their journey to Austin by road aboard six lorries, accompanied by three escort vehicles.

In September 2015 Capital Metro ordered four additional DMUs from Stadler to augment its fleet of six that were delivered for the opening of the route in 2010

The new connections are just 5 Minutes after the previous ones. Is there a great rush at exactly those times? Or is it because of some Time window they have to use?

Those are the most overcrowded trains, so there is likely a rush at those times. I think downtown Austin has a large contingent of state government employees, who presumably get off work at around the same time (4:30p-5p).

But also, much of this line is single track, so there are probably physical limitations on how much service can be improved.

I visited Portland, Oregon for the first time a month ago....I really wish Austin would implement a Portland style public transportation.
