Interurban Service in Georgetown

CARTS operates a fixed, interurban bus route between Georgetown and Austin twice daily, Monday through Friday. Passengers in Georgetown are picked up by the interurban bus at two locations: Downtown Georgetown Bus Stop at Ninth and Main streets and the CARTS Georgetown Station at 3620 S. Austin Ave. From Georgetown, the Red Route 1511 stops at University Oaks (IKEA), CARTS Round Rock, Tech Ridge Park & Ride, Austin Greyhound, and CARTS Austin. In Austin, CARTS passengers have the option of utilizing the Grasshopper, a special CARTS on-call service that is only available to those transferring from another CARTS service in Austin, to reach their final destinations.

Medical Transit Service in Georgetown

CARTS provides non-emergency medical transportation services for Logisticare Solutions, LLC, a broker under contract to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services to arrange transportation for eligible persons in the CARTS District. These services are free and can be arranged through HHS call centers. People using Texas Health Steps and other Medicaid programs are eligible for the service. The service is called the HHSC Medical Transportation Program.

Greyhound Bus Service

Georgetown has a Greyhound bus service at the CARTS Georgetown Station at 3260 S. Austin Ave. The route serving Georgetown provides connection to the Austin Bus Station where passengers then transfer to routes heading to cities such as Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.

Rides and taxi service

Non-Profit Services

Faith in Action Georgetown provides rides for the elderly who are unable to drive. Faith in Action drivers are volunteers who utilize their personal vehicles free of charge to help seniors get to medical appointments and run errands. Clients who have enrolled in the program are allowed two one-way trips per week and must be over the age of 65 and unable to drive. Volunteer drivers are not able to accommodate people in wheelchairs; however, they can provide assistance to clients from their home to the vehicle and then from the vehicle into the destination (known as door-to-door service). Volunteers can also provide door-through-door service, which means that the volunteer would stay with the client to assist during the trip.

Faith in Action Georgetown is a partner of Drive a Senior, another non-profit program that utilizes volunteer drivers to assist those in need of transportation assistance by offering curb-to-curb, door-to-door, and door-through-door service. Drive a Senior has several service areas in the region, including five Austin service areas, an Elgin service area, and a Pflugerville/Round Rock service area. Another Faith in Action partner operates the Northwest Austin service area.

Agency/Facility-Specific Shuttle Services

Many agencies provide targeted service for their clients to access the services of the agency. Scott & White Healthcare System has a shuttle service that transports people among the four Scott & White facilities in the area. The Boys & Girls Club of Georgetown provides its own transportation for children from area schools to the Boys & Girls Club sites. It also coordinates with the GISD school bus system to facilitate its targeted transportation system.

Rail service

Georgetown does not have Amtrak service in the city limits. The nearest Amtrak station to Georgetown is in Taylor, approximately 20 miles east of the city. There are also stations to the south of Georgetown in Austin and to the north in Temple.

Transit Development Plan

The City of Georgetown and the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CapMetro) are working to update Georgetown’s existing Transit Development Plan, which was adopted in 2016, to evaluate and address increased mobility needs for the rapidly growing community.

The updated plan will allow the City to participate in CapMetro’s Regional Service Expansion Program and provide context sensitive transit project recommendations for the City of Georgetown’s consideration. The plan will identify gaps in existing local and regional transit services and recommend opportunities to improve mobility and increase access to economic opportunities, healthcare, and other essential services and resources in areas that currently fall outside of the CapMetro service area.

Residents are invited to learn more about the project and provide additional comments through a virtual open house on the project website. The virtual open house will be available from Dec. 4-22, 2023.

Community Engagement

Engaging with the community throughout the planning process will ensure the City of Georgetown’s transportation initiatives are informed by residents and that its efforts are responsive, equitable, and effective. By gathering and incorporating feedback from Georgetown residents, transit customers, and key stakeholders, Georgetown can ensure that the updated Transit Development Plan accurately reflects the needs and priorities of the community.
