New Bus Stops at Rundberg and North Lamar
Open for Business!

Construction began in January on the improved Capital Metro bus stops on Rundberg near North Lamar. The improvements are the result of neighborhood input from NACA with coordination from HEB, the Villas at Quail Creek, and the Little Walnut Creek Library.

In August, Capital Metro completed the improved bus stop at North Lamar and Rundberg - south side, next to the Library. The improvements include a pull-off lane to improve traffic flow, and a 20-foot covered area with new benches, decorative pavers and trash cans.

Construction was delayed on the north side pending city approval for the irrigation system, but was completed in early October. There is a pull-off lane on that side also, which should further reduce traffic congestion. The bus stop has decorative pavers and benches, and a limestone planter seat wall with landscaping and irrigation.

The City of Austin has also provided a pedestrian crosswalk with flashing lights both overhead and along the crosswalk itself, to facilitate safer crossing of Rundberg between HEB and the Little Walnut Creek Library.

The temporary bus stop on the other side of Little Walnut Creek to the west hs been removed.
