The southbound MetroRapid 803 bus line, also called the Burnet/South Lamar line, is one of Austin’s two bus rapid transit lines operated by Capital Metro. It travels from the Domain area in North Austin to the Westgate Transit Center at Ben White Boulevard and Victory Drive, mostly via South Lamar Boulevard, Guadalupe Street, Burnet Road, and a small stretch of North Lamar Boulevard.
As with the MetroRapid 801 line, stops are clustered most densely in the UT Campus/Downtown area, so some riders might have to transfer to regular buses or use other means of transportation to get to their ultimate destinations.
Nevertheless, 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.Read More
