CapMetro Rolls Out A More Modest Proposal For Downtown Rail Stations


Capital Metro has scaled down its ambitions for a permanent MetroRail station in downtown Austin. The transit agency showed off at a public meeting on Friday its preferred concept for the station, a much more conventional rendering compared to the swooping modernist proposals floated last year.

Also missing is the grand appellation by which the station had been known until now. Formerly referred to as the Gateway Station, the project is now referred to in less theatrical terms.
