Ways to MoveCommuter Rail

MetroRail is our commuter rail line that extends from downtown Austin all the way to Leander. It’s been a decade since we launched the MetroRail service and the next step is to help it reach its full potential. Our region is growing and the needs of our communities are shifting. So, what’s next?

We're already improving the Red Line by adding a second set of tracks near select stations, which will lessen delays and increase the frequency we can run trains. That lets us add new trips and accommodate more customers. The Project Connect vision also includes the new MetroRail Green Line, which would connect neighborhoods east of Central Austin to downtown.

What’s planned for MetroRail?
