The major changes in Central East Austin are the addition of Routes 2, 4, 17, 18 and 20 to the High-Frequency Network, greatly improving east-west transit service. While Route 100 was eliminated and Route 350 no longer serves the airport,
Frequent Route 20 extends to ABIA every 15 minutes, seven days per week. Route 228’s service to the Met Center and VA Clinic begin at Pleasant Valley Rd. and Riverside Dr. instead of the
South Congress Transit Center. Route 271 now serves FM 973 (the Travis County Complex) and Riverside east of Ben White Blvd. (Met Center), ending near the Ruiz Branch Public Library. Some portions of
Ledesma Rd., Lott Ave., Prock Ln. and Sara Dr. (Route 2); Vargas Rd. (Route 4); and Burleson Rd., Todd Ln. and St. Elmo Rd. (Route 228) have lost service. Beginning in August, a southbound school trip will operate on Vargas Rd.
between Allison Elementary School and Riverside during the afternoon on weekdays.
