MetroRail returned to running downtown in November 2019.
The new Downtown
Station will transform MetroRail. Find out what it'll look like.
Visit our Online Marketplace or
the CapMetro App to purchase your fare.
CapMetro is installing new ticketing machines at MetroRail stations
that feature more ways
to pay, including credit or debit cards, as well as Apple Pay or Google Pay. The current
machines will be removed as the new kiosks are installed.
Why fight traffic on your commute to and from work when you can use the time for
something you'd rather be doing instead?
MetroRail trains run late on Friday and Saturday nights. Enjoy Austin's downtown, where there's
always something going on, or destinations at any stop along the line. The last train leaves Plaza
Saltillo at about 12:30 a.m. Friday night and after midnight on Saturday. If you're out even later,
check our Late-Night Service.
If you're worried about how you'll get home in case of an emergency and thus hesitant to take the train, then we've got you covered. The Guaranteed Ride Home program provides
registered MetroExpress, MetroFlyer, MetroRail and MetroRideShare customers with a taxi ride home from work in the event of an unexpected emergency. For an annual membership fee of $5, you can register and get reimbursed for up to 4 emergency taxi rides a year.
