Capital Metro recently conducted a study to evaluate their fare structure. The study concluded that a phased approach over the next two years to restructure Capital Metro’s contract deals with large employers and retail outlets that sell passes, eliminate the complicated zoned-fare structure for MetroRail, increase pass prices, and eventually the base fare.

Before developing a proposal for changing the fare structure, they want to hear from you. You can attend one of the public meetings to provide comments and feedback on the fare structure recommendations.
Normally, we would tell you why this is important to North Austin, but honestly? We need everybody to speak up about how broken the system is for Austin's disabled.
One of the biggest complaints NACN receives about Cap Metro is how difficult it is for the disabled to get their initial card so they can then qualify for Cap Metro's programs and tickets.
Please let Cap Metro know we want them to start holding quarterly or bimonthly events in different parts of Austin, events where the disabled can get their initial cards.
Austin's disabled should NOT have to go all the way downtown to qualify for Cap Metro's programs - it's unfair and it puts one more barrier on these people's rights to access!
