Proposal would realign Route 300 Govalle from Rogge to 51st between Springdale and Berkman, providing improved access to the new Mueller H-E-B at 51st & Berkman. Proposal would also improve connections between Routes 20 & 300 by moving away from Rogge & Manor.

In response to public and board member feedback, Capital Metro has reconsidered its original proposal and has removed Route 300 Govalle from the August service change proposal and will not realign the route from Rogge Lane to 51st Street (between Springdale Road and Berkman Drive) in August.

However, to provide access to the new Mueller H-E-B at Berkman Dive and 51st Street, a minor modification is now proposed along Route 320 St. Johns. Alignment along the existing portion of the route would remain the same with an extension two blocks east in the Mueller area, from Mueller Boulevard to Berkman Drive. Along the existing portion of Route 320, no stops would be missed and two additional stops would be available in either direction near the H-E-B. Frequency along the route would remain the same.
