myFOXaustin(AUSTIN) - The Bus Riders Union says it's trying to fix the broken public transit system in Austin.
Some stakeholders, or anyone who pays taxes in the Capital City, met today to discuss their concerns. They say the current system run by Capital Metro is costly, outdated, and segregated.
"They have a problem using the system to get to where they need to go, they have a problem with the system getting them there when they need to be there, they have a problem with increasing fares," said coordinator Mac McKaskle.
The Bus Riders Union wants CapMetro to run on a grid system, saying it's modern, efficient, and fair.
