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

CATCH CAP METRO | You can start your trip nearly anywhere with a Cap Metro Commuter Day Pass. Open Congress is happening downtown, which means finding a transit line that gets you there is easy! Transit Routes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 19, 20, 30, 801, 803, 980, and 985 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.

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

TEXAS TRIBUNE FESTIVAL | For three days in late September, the Texas Tribune, an Austin-based nonprofit media organization, takes over Downtown Austin for a festival of the political persuasion. Now in its nine year, TribFest annually gathers leaders in politics, public policy, and journalism for in-depth conversations and panels that tackle the most pressing issues of the day, including immigration, paid sick leave, gender equity, and more.

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!
