The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Cap Metro) earlier this week opened a new MetroRail light-rail station in downtown Austin, Texas.
The station opened ahead of schedule and under the expected budget, Cap Metro officials said in a press release.
The facility includes three tracks and accommodates up to four trains at a time, increasing service capacity. Its opening marks the next chapter for Austin’s downtown corridor, connecting surrounding businesses and Austin’s growing workforce with expanded transit capacity, agency officials said.
