Alliance Transportation is working with Capital Metro to replace the existing Downtown Station. Alliance has partnered with HNTB Corporation, forming the Downtown Gateway Partners, to complete this extensive and important work. Alliance is leading the project management, civil, traffic, and roadway elements of this project.
Capital Metro’s original Downtown Station was designed and constructed as a temporary facility to meet the short-term needs of MetroRail. Since start-up in 2010, the service has experienced rapidly increasing ridership. MetroRail is currently at capacity during the peak periods and the Downtown Station is particularly popular, especially during the many downtown Austin special events.
