Add Mass Transit Solutions To One Of The Many Reasons To Make The Move To Leander, Texas
Living in Leander doesn’t mean you have to disconnect from Austin City Limits! The City of Leander rests in the peaceful outskirts of Austin, and is home to hill country views and small town charm. Ranked one of the fastest growing suburbs of Austin, it is still nestled off the beaten path for that quiet country feel.
If you’re like one of many who has made the move to Leander, or you're considering making the move, and you still want/need easy access into Austin, the Leander Metro Station just might be the answer you’re looking for! While traffic isn’t always miserable with the convenient toll road access running through Leander, it can certainly get expensive. And let’s be honest - rush hour is anything but rushed once you get into Austin’s city limits. The Leander Metro Station is a Park & Ride facility boasting over 600 free parking spaces, and offers two types of mass transit as solutions to get you in and out of Austin with less stress and less expense - MetroExpress and MetroRail.
MetroExpress is a bus service designed for busy commuters to take you from Leander into downtown Austin. With comfy seating and free wifi, you can get a head start on your work day, or stream that latest tv series you’ve been meaning to catch up on! MetroExpress uses the toll lanes to get in and out of Austin, so to bypass most traffic, which is every commuter’s expectation [now imagine how relaxed you’d feel as you pass all those drivers stuck in the MoPac parking lot, rightfully refusing to pay the toll lane premium during rush hours].
The MetroRail is Capital Metro’s train solution to mass transit. This 32-mile track can get you from Leander to North Austin to downtown Austin without ever having to worry about any kind of potential traffic delays. Like the MetroExpress, you’ll have access to free wifi on board, and there are additional bus stops to transfer to at most of the MetroRail stations.
Day passes for both methods of travel cost $7, and Capital Metro offers a free app to purchase your fare, and to plan your trip. Visit capmetro.org for more details, including how Capital Metro is practicing safety protocols in response to COVID-19.
