On June 3, we’ll remake Austin’s transit map and put in place the biggest changes ever to Capital Metro’s bus service. Cap Remap will make our buses more frequent, more reliable and better connected. The new bus network is the result of two years of planning and community input and was approved by our board of directors last fall.

We’re confident the changes will create a more useful transit system that will increase ridership, and we’re excited to see what more frequent, reliable and better-connected service can do for our community. While the route you ride today may change significantly on June 3, in most cases there will be better options in your area that connect you to major destinations all throughout Austin.

In the Cherrywood neighborhood, the number of frequent routes or routes operating at least every 15 minutes, 7 days a week—will increase from zero to two. These services—Route 20 Manor Road/Riverside and Route 335 35th/38th Street—will connect you to Mueller, ABIA, UT, downtown and beyond. Existing Routes 21/22 and 320 will be combined into the new Route 322 Chicon/Cherrywood, while Route 37 service along I-35 will go away, with replacement service available nearby on Red River via Frequent Route 10 Red River/South 1st Street.

There are many changes in store! To learn more, check out our website at capmetro.org/remap, give us a call at 512-474-1200 or shoot us an email at feedback@capmetro.org. We look forward to hearing from you, and we can’t wait to see you onboard in June!
