  • MetroAccess

    In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Capital Metro provides transit service for qualified individuals that runs parallel to our regular, fixed-route bus service. A door-to-door, shared-ride service for riders with ADA-eligible disabilities who cannot always use the accessible fixed-route buses.

  • Guaranteed Ride Home

    We know that some people might be reluctant to take transit due to concerns about being stranded without a way to get home or to a sick child in the case of an unexpected illness. In those cases, our Guaranteed Ride Home program offers you a safety net through reimbursement for cab or carshare fees.


    The Capital Area Rural Transportation System (CARTS) operates transit service to neighboring communities outside the Capital Metro Service Area.

  • Changes to schedules

    Capital Metro's schedules occasionally change, sometimes because we identify shifting patterns in ridership and sometimes just due to holidays, special events or street construction. To find out when and why service might be disrupted, click through to our Schedule Change page.
