Leander is a Capital MetroRail commuter rail station and park and ride in Leander, Texas. The park and ride portion of it, designed by McKinney York Architects, was built in 2007 and is located on Highway 183 just north of FM 2243 and is the northern terminus of the Red Line.[2] Leander is one of two stations located within Williamson County alongside Lakeline as opposed to Travis County which contains the other seven locations. Leander Station includes a Park & Ride with 600 spaces.[3] With Lakeline serving as a midday and Saturday terminus for many trains in service, Leander is only serviced by the Red Line during weekday rush hour and late Friday nights.
