Austin Metro Rail


The new MetroRail train was parked at Saltillo Plaza Station so that folks could walk through it in advance of the commuter rail operation set to begin on March 30, 2009 by Capital Metro. It's called the "Red Line" and can hold almost 200 people and meets up with buses scheduled to stop at the stations to help folks use an intergrated transit system to get around town. Some of the stations have Park & Ride lots to leave your car at so you can catch the train and then the bus. For the schedule go to www.capmetro.org. iconmedia's Pam Thompson and Stefan Wray produce Austin News Real in the studios of channelAustin. This Austin News Real program aired on channelAustin 10 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm on March 5, 2009. channelAustin is Austin's community television and digital media center. See www.channelaustin.org
