According to our partners at the Austin American-Statesman, council members took it off the agenda during Thursday night's meeting.
Council members made the move after Leander's mayor said he was talking with the transportation service to figure out ways to reduce the cost. Leander uses half of its sales tax to fund the agency, which is more than $5 million a year.

Mayor Troy Hill wants to reduce the amount the City pays from 1% of the City's sales tax to .25%.
"They shouldn't take the whole one cent," said Hill. "It should be a quarter of a cent."
CapMetro originally told KVUE, "There is no legal ability for the authority [CapMetro] to reduce just one member's sales tax contribution to the authority."
CapMetro currently serves Leander through rail and bus services. The Metro Express bus line serves Leander on the weekends.
