CapMetro currently operates multiple MetroExpress services: 

Our MetroExpress routes provide commuter bus service for North Austin and outlying areas, allowing customers to leave their cars at Park & Rides and travel into Central Austin.

Some MetroExpress routes are also able to take advantage of the MoPac Express Lanes, letting riders bypass traffic toll-free. These vehicles have free Wi-Fi, comfy seats and room for your bike. Five MetroExpress routes serve Northwest Austin and Leander, with the other two serving Tech Ridge or Elgin and Manor.
