Here in central Texas, traffic congestion threatens the very quality of our lives. It takes too long to get where we’re going. It stresses us out. We waste countless hours on the road.
It’s time for us all to think differently about transportation. Capital Metro is looking for better ways to move more people more efficiently. We’re working with local agencies, stakeholders and people in our community -- people just like you -- to offer greater options for travel into, out of and around Austin.
We call our bold vision Project Connect. Our goal is to connect people, places and opportunities through a complete, congestion-proof system of reliable and frequent high-capacity transit services running in dedicated lanes or on tracks, away from other traffic.
Think of the possibilities. Leave the worries of car ownership, driving and parking behind. Have greater access to job opportunities. Spend more time doing the things you enjoy. Experience the best our region has to offer. – All because you will spend less time stuck in traffic.
Help us get there. Capital Metro is relying on you to help shape the future of transportation in central Texas. We’re on track to complete the Project Connect transit plan by fall 2018, and there are many ways you can participate. Check back from time to time to find out about upcoming events, get updates, explore the plan as it is being developed, and send us your ideas and questions.
