This bus rapid transit line operated by Capital Metro, the MetroRapid 801 North Lamar-South Congress, 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 N. 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, dedicated lanes, frequent runs, and even transit signal priority. They also have wifi, run every 15 minutes on weekends, and run until 2:30 a.m. Thursday through Sunday.

Note: This map is part of Curbed’s first-ever Transportation Week: a week-long romp through all things related to transportation in the U.S. We'll be focusing on the topics most pressing to cities. Everything from ways to improve public transportation in cities to ranking the best neighborhoods across the country for living a car-free life, plus a friendly competition between NYC, San Francisco, and Los Angeles to determine which city has the best public transit in the U.S. All aboard!
