RPS updates CARTS Maps, adds them to myCommuteSolutions

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

CAPCOG’s Regional Planning and Service Division partnered with the Capital Area Rural Transit System (CARTS) to update the transportation system’s interurban coach maps making them more accessible to daily commuters including users. By being more inclusive of all the region’s transportation, becomes a more powerful tool for those attempting to sustainably travel through the metropolitan area. 

CARTS’ interurban coach routes run between Austin, Bastrop, Burnet, Georgetown, Round Rock, Liberty Hill, Smithville, La Grange, and others cities to provide a connection between those communities and the Capital Metro and Grey Hound bus systems. The partnership generated a more data friendly map of each route’s stops, which can be used to provide more accurate information to CARTS riders and easily be integrated into other websites. CAPCOG has already inputted the map’s data into allowing for metropolitan commuters, who use the web-based tool and its mobile applications, to better plan and track their commute across multiple sustainable modes of transportation and through multiple cities.
