Best Substitute For A Main Street Trolley

No. 1 North Lamar Bus

We don't use public transit because we don't like to wait. Half an hour between buses is reason for aiming the gas guzzler downtown. But not if you live near the No. 1, North Lamar. Starting at the 183/North Lamar transfer center, it comes practically every 10 minutes and stops often, at locations including the Austin State Hospital and the University of Texas. It changes to the No. 13 bus, then goes down Congress to William Cannon.
