Have a coffee downtown at Texas Coffee Traders, breakfast at Easy Tiger at The Linc, and spend a few hours at the Farmer’s Market in Old Town Leander.

The big picture: Three nonprofits – Austin Young Chamber, Movability and Transit Forward – want to show how easy it is to visit local businesses using the MetroRail.

Why is it important: Transit advocates aim to get more Austinians on city buses and trains to improve traffic congestion and reduce air pollution.

What they say : “This directory increases accessibility for Austinites to support the small business community,” said Joana Ortiz, president and CEO of the Austin Young Chamber. “It will become a model for future rail lines to support our vibrant and culturally diverse local businesses.”

To note : MetroRail riders can find information about carpooling options and bike and scooter rentals when they arrive at each station.
