Does anyone know if there are plans for Capital Metro to expand bus service past the Wildflower Terrace on Berkman?

I'm not sure. I'd love to see it done though. You might want to lodge a suggestion over at https://capmetro.granicusideas.com/

A proposal that might get through since it'd just be a slight lengthening of the route would be to expand the #37 so it enters/exits Mueller at Zach Scott instead of Aldrich and turns on to Berkman where it goes north to 51st Street.

Although I'm sure once more development picks up on the Eastern side of Berkman like the current development in the southeast-central area near Wildflower it'll be more feasible.

Thank you Eric. I have suggested that Cap Metro expand senior bus services to include Wildflower Terrace and Franklin Gardens. Here's the link--

Added information --

There are senior bus routes operating in Central, North East and South East Austin (Buses 490, 491, and 492) which transport people from senior communities three days a week during the late morning to early afternoon to grocery stores and shopping areas. It would be great to have this bus service for the residents of Wildflower Terrace and Franklin Gardens and perhaps other nearby senior communities. Although, they're directed at seniors, anyone can ride them, and they have been and are free. Also, those using them can easily transfer to a Cap Metro bus or Metro train, because they either share the same stops or are located nearby.

There is an Access service available to senior citizens, but it costs $6 round trip. That's expensive for senior citizens on a budget. That's why I'm suggesting the expansion of senior bus services on the east side.
