Best Point A to B: The "Bendy" Bus

Best Point A to B: The
PHOTO BY John Anderson

Everybody needs a flexible friend, and the buses swinging along Capital Metro’s swanky new MetroRapid routes fit the bill. Sure, there’ve been gripes about the schedule. And yes, even a top-end transit option like the 801 Lamar route (and its new baby sibling, the 803 running up Burnet) can’t magically hop over Austin’s abysmal traffic. But with more leg room, bigger windows, WiFi, and the joy of a bus whose back and front go this way and that to distract you on your trip, maybe the bendy bus will wiggle its way into the hearts of the most committed commuter.
