Capital Metro plans to conduct a MetroRail emergency drill tonight

Update: Capital Metro’s MetroRail Service is back up and running this morning. But trains are running behind schedule because of a technology problem earlier this morning.

Capital Metro says the first train will depart from Leander at about 6:50 a.m.

A Capital Metro spokesperson says crews will work hard this morning to get back on schedule.

Original Story (6:22 a.m.): Capital Metro’s MetroRail Service is down this morning because of a technology problem.

Capital Metro says crews are working to resolve the issue – but, at least for now, there are no trains running.

Capital Metro will have Express Buses available to transport passengers from stations towards downtown Austin.

Right now, there’s no estimate on when the MetroRail will be back up and running.
