MetroRapid 801 North Lamar-South Congress, one of Austin’s two bus rapid transit lines operated by Capital Metro, travels between Tech Ridge to Southpark Meadows, mostly via North Lamar and South Congress boulevards.

From the north, it starts at Tech Ridge Bay 1, east of I-35 near Center Ridge Road. It travels southeast to Parmer Lane, where it crosses I-35 and catches North Lamar Boulevard and heads south. The second stop is at North Lamar and Kramer Lane, after which stops become more frequent as it continues south, jogging over to Guadalupe Street at the Triangle split.

It continues on Lavaca Street after Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard, crosses the South First Bridge, and jogs again to South Congress, making a quick side trip to South Congress Station Bay J just south of Highway 71, then continues on South Congress and the I-35 access road to its terminal stop at Southpark Meadows.

The line’s stops are clustered most densely in the UT Campus/Downtown area, and some riders might have to transfer to regular buses or use other means of transportation to get to their ultimate destinations, but MetroRapid lines are built to be faster and more streamlined, with front and back entry and exit doors, priority or dedicated lanes and frequent runs. They also have wifi, run every 10 minutes (15 minutes on weekends), and run until 2:30 a.m. Thursday through Sunday.
