The Green Line will run along CapMetro's existing freight line between downtown Austin to Colony Park, with future extensions to Manor and Elgin. Improvements will include developing transit stations along the corridor that will provide great places to connect the community to efficient, reliable transit.

Green Line at a glance: 25 miles and 10 stations, 2 connections to light rail routes, 1 connection to MetroRail routes, and 4 connections to MetroRapid routes

Green Line Benefits

  • Unique opportunities for housing. The Green Line corridor will provide transit opportunities to equity households along the corridor.
  • Increased access to jobs and services. The proposed Green Line will provide more households with transit options to travel to jobs and services within Central Austin and beyond. The Green Line will provide connectivity to the CapMetro Red Line, other potential high-capacity corridors and the CapMetro high-frequency bus network.
