Going Green? Then take the Red…Line that is.

I’m happy to note that the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority has released a tentative schedule for its new commuter rail service, the Capital MetroRail, aka the Red Line.

The Red Line will run on 32-miles of existing freight tracks between Leander and Downtown Austin.

Practice runs of the service will begin Feb. 12 along the entire 32-mile rail line and regular service is expected to begin in March! Frequency will be every 30 minutes.

Get this, “Sleek, new trains will take you to work in comfort and style, providing you with high-back seats, bicycle and overhead racks, and Wi-Fi connections. Capital MetroRail will offer service during morning and afternoon peak hours. Local routes and rail connector routes will whisk you to your final destination.”
