Where does CapMetro operate? I have seen CapMetro police driving around the Austin area several times and have always wondered what system they are operating on. Also where are the buses operating on? The only talkgroup I see is 3347 on GATRRS, but have never heard it keyed up.

CapMetro employs ~150 part-time, off-duty Austin PD officers as its security force currently. They are in the process of starting its own police force (2022) and reducing its number of off-duty APD officers. Currently I believe anyone working P/T off-duty work for APD, to include Cap Metro, will monitor the APD patrol sector TGID that they are working and I hear APD calling for CapMetro answering on occasion with an APD portable radio UID. I will hear other units on occasion key up to let the dispatcher know they are working off duty at a location so as to flag that location in CAD for any officers that may be dispatched to that location later to know an off-duty officer is working there already.
