MetroRail Service Update: Pardon Our Progress
During our scheduled construction on MetroRail that will last through late 2019, we've added a few options to reduce its effect on service.
MetroRail will temporarily stop at Plaza Saltillo, so we've added a shuttle to bring you from Plaza Saltillo to 4th and Trinity Streets. Weekend service is temporarily suspended until late 2019, but we've taken care of you with added MetroExpress service and our High-Frequency Network.
We appreciate your patience while we complete these improvements - all of which are meant to add greater capacity, frequency and reliability to MetroRail!
Still taking the train? No worries, a shuttle will take you to 4th & Trinity. Want to take a bus instead? We've got loads of them that offer great service.
- The Route 451 Downtown/Saltillo Shuttle will carry you between Plaza Saltillo and 4th and Trinity. Customers catching the train at Plaza Saltillo need to add in extra time for the shuttle service! MetroRail trains will leave at their scheduled times and not wait for shuttles to arrive at the station. Shuttles connecting to the 3:34 and 6:10 MetroRail departures have encountered significant delays. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to catch the train!
- We've added service on MetroExpress Routes 980 and 985 to accommodate new riders. Ridership has grown on our MetroExpress routes in the past year, because the service is so great. Check it out for yourself!
- Catching the bus from downtown after work? Your MetroExpress bus stop is at Guadalupe and 5th Streets (Stop ID 2612). Then head home using the MoPac Express Lanes, waving to the traffic as you zoom by.
To cover the missing Saturday rail service, MetroExpress Routes 980 and 985 operate whenever MetroRail would have, between 4 p.m. and midnight:
While MetroRail is under construction, we've got you covered with our High-Frequency MetroBus and MetroRapid service, plus some additional MetroExpress service. See below for your best options according to your normal MetroRail station:
