Capital Metro welcomes you to five open houses at stations along the MetroRail line this February. Come see the train, pick up a schedule, learn to use the new ticket vending machines, and get all of your questions answered about riding the train.
The open houses are free, come-and-go events, open to the public. Except for the Leander open house, parking will be limited. Riding the bus or carpooling is encouraged.
Sign Language interpreters for the Deaf will be available, and other reasonable accommodations can be requested at least three days in advance by contacting Nancy Crowther at (512) 389-7583 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Capital MetroRail Open Houses:
Leander Station – Saturday, Feb. 7
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Hwy 183 north of FM 2243
Leslie Lockett, Director of Public Affairs for the regional H-E-B office returned my call Friday afternoon after two attempts to contact her earlier in the week. She said H-E-B is exploring their options with regard to expanding the Allandale store but no decision has been made. "H-E-B will make a formal announcement when a
decision has been made." As for now, they are only in the exploration stage. She did confirm there is a serious interest in it but there are a number of considerations. It takes awhile to get the design work done and determine the project costs. Like everyone else they are cautious about taking on any construction with the current state of the economy. H-E-B will also have to work through an agreement with the landlord to move forward on an expansion.
