MTM Transit teammates in Austin, Texas recently welcomed a special guest: the U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg! Secretary Buttigieg was invited to Austin by Capitol Metro for a showcase of Pick-Up microtransit services. Pick-Up, which is operated by MTM Transit drivers, offers on-demand pick-ups and drop-offs to curbside destinations within specific Austin service zones. Passengers can request rides through the Pick-Up app or by calling the service center. Service is available at the same rates as Capital Metro’s fixed route bus service.

Our Austin team was thrilled to meet and mingle with Secretary Buttigieg as they offered him an inside look at the service. Thank you for visiting MTM Transit and Capital Metro, Secretary!
