Cap Metro Route for Mueller
by mam469 on July 16th, 2008

Last I remember Cap Metro was only planning on running down Mueller Street and Berkman. Is that still true. I guess I am hoping they are not planning on cutting into the actual neighborhood streets. Does anyone have current info?

The only bus that drives down residental streets better have ice cream on board and play a jingle.

Yes, mostly. The existing and planned transit routes coordinate with the Mueller Design Guidelines http://muelleraustin.com/pdf/design_guidelines.pdf?phpMyAdmin=da3e4d340f3a5d9a7853dea15ee6feae, which dictate which streets were planned for transit use, and which were not. In short, there shouldn't be any 45-foot buses running down narrow, local streets. Here's the lowdown on the projects I know of:

Existing Routes:
Capital Metro bus routes http://www.capmetro.org/riding/current_schedules%5Cmaps%5Csystem_map.pdf: #20 (Manor), #37 & 320 (E 51st, retail), #135 & 350 (Airport Blvd.)

Proposed Routes: (planning in process, funding may be in place)
Capital Metro's Future Connections Study http://www.allsystemsgoconnections.org/get_more_info/library/files/PreferredAlign8_31_06.pdf includes a proposed streetcar alignment along Mueller > Phlomena > Berkman > Manor, and a
Rapid bus "Capital MetroRapid" routes including Mueller, Airport, and Berkman

Capital Metro is holding community meetings July 28 & 30 http://www.capmetro.org/news/news_detail.asp?id=5194 concerning the Capital MetroRapid routes proposed for first implementation: the North Lamar/South Congress and Burnet/South Lamar routes. I plan on attending the first meeting downtown. I'm not sure when the MetroRapid might be running down Berkman, but it ain't next week. Until then, my bicycle is suitable low-capacity transit on existing bike routes http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/bicycle/bikemap.htm.
