MetroRail Sees Record Crowds During SXSW

Updated: Friday, March 15 2013, 06:20 PM CDT

Capital Metro says they've seen record numbers of people using the MetroRail to get to Downtown Austin for South by Southwest.

Capital Metro officials say MetroRail ridership during the interactive and film portion of SXSW from March 8-12 surpassed 2012 by nearly 7,000 boardings, with an approximate total of 20,000 trips to-date.

The MetroRail service has been extremely popular this week after more trains were offered during midday. Ticket sales are also up 37 percent over last year.

Ridership figures are not available yet for local bus service, but preliminary numbers show the service has been very popular, with many buses at full capacity, according to Capital Metro.MetroRail Sees Record Crowds During SXSW
