CapMetro has launched a new ride hailing service called Pickup in northeast Austin! Pickup is an app that lets you arrange on-demand transit service. It operates three days a week: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays between 9 am and 6 pm. Pickup is currently a free service!

Pickup replaces Capital Metro’s MetroFlex Upper Eastside pilot route and is serving the same area of Northeast Austin, which includes the Mueller Development, Capital Plaza, Coronado Hills and Cameron Road near Dobie Middle School. Capital Metro has said that the pilot, which began in June, will run for nine months to a year. After that, the agency will review feedback and lessons learned and the board will decide on next steps. 

To get started using Pickup, download the app and you’ll be ready to go! When you request service, your trip will be matched with other travelers heading to the same destination, and the Pickup vehicle will arrive within 15 minutes.
