CARTS offers three transportation options in Elgin: Country Bus, Interurban Coach and CARTS Metro Connector (partnership with CapMetro).
The Country Bus is a flexible service that provides rides locally and to nearby destinations, but requires a ride reservation be made in advance. Ideal for seniors, disabled individuals or others requiring special assistance, this community transit service provides Curb-to-Curb transportation throughout the CARTS district, and connects to the regional intercity bus network for extending access beyond local destinations. Reservations can be made by calling (512)478-RIDE (7433).
The Interurban Coach is a regional intercity route providing connections between Austin International Airport, Austin, Bastrop, Bertram, Burnet, Georgetown, Liberty Hill, Lockhart, Luling, Marble Falls, Round Rock, San Marcos, Texas State University, LaGrange, Giddings, Paige, Smithville and Elgin and makes connections to Greyhound, Capital Metro and Amtrak. The Elgin Metro Connector provides bus service from Downtown Elgin, Manor into downtown Austin. The route provides service for persons wishing to travel for the weekday commute to Austin for work, shopping or other purposes.
The downtown Elgin stop is located on Depot St. between Avenue B and Avenue C.
