If you use a Reduced Fare ID Card, you must first visit the Capital Metro Transit Store (located in downtown Austin at 209 West Lavaca, open Monday – Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm) to have a Capital Metro representative activate the reduced fare purchasing option on the app. Students looking to purchase reduced fares on the app must first complete the Reduced Fare ID Card eligibility process and then have a Transit Store representative activate the reduced fare purchasing option.
If you are a MetroAccess customer, you can register to purchase MetroAccess passes on the app by calling MetroAccess at 512-369-6067. Please have your client ID number available and email address used to register your account.
What's New in Version 1.020
Bug fixes and stability improvements
Love the layout and easy to use interface. Wish the app had more options for route search choices like rail only or rapid bus only, especially if you want to drive into a station and ride downtown from there. Being able to find the quickest or closest route to your destination will just have to do for now.
Try to sign in via Google and you are stuck in some kind of login hell. I can login but have a text menu of only a few options. One of them is to enter credit card info, but the address fields won't accept characters only numbers. Looks like this app is only good for looking at schedules, worthless for buying tickets.
