Commuter Rail

Our region is growing and the needs of our communities are shifting. So, what’s next for Commuter Rail?

Commuter Rail Red Line ​

Our commuter rail service that extends from downtown Austin to Leander. It’s been a decade since we launched Commuter Rail and the next step is for it to reach its full potential. ​
We're already improving the Red Line by adding a second set of tracks near select stations, which will lessen delays and increase the frequency we can run trains. That lets us add new trips and accommodate more customers. 

Commuter Rail Green Line​

The Commuter Rail Green Line proposes a 27-mile system traveling from downtown Austin to eastern Travis County and into Bastrop County, connecting Manor with downtown Austin using congestion-proof commuter rail. ​
With new transit hubs and Park & Rides, the Green Line would operate along Capital Metro’s existing freight line between Austin and Manor, with a possible extension to Elgin, and connect residents from established and developing neighborhoods to jobs and services in Central Austin.​
