******************************

CATCH CAP METRO | You can start your trip nearly anywhere with a Cap Metro Local Day Pass. Museums are located across the city, with many well-connected to transit. See below for a list of museums and transit routes that will get you there!

None of the transit routes directly serve your home? No problem. Start your trip at a Capital Metro Park & Ride and/or find a free parking spot along Capital Metro's High-Frequency Network (every 15 min, 7 days a week!) so you can save yourself the time, money and hassle of finding parking around town.

*****************************

AUSTIN MUSEUM PARTNERSHIP | promotes and facilitates collaboration within the museum community for the benefit of Austin area museums and the community at large. Since 1998, the Austin Museum Partnership has coordinated Austin Museum Day, a community event which offers free admission and includes special programs and activities at museums and cultural institutions across the area on the penultimate (second to last) Sunday of the month of September.

TRANSIT ADVENTURES is a transportation demand management (TDM) program designed to increase transit ridership and reduce parking demand among participants. Capital Metro hosts the program to provide transit training in a risk-free, low-stakes environment for groups of 10 - 40 people and can organize a team-building trip for FREE for your office, neighborhood group, organization, church or school using our transit services. Contact us and let us plan a Transit Adventure for your group!
