Project Connect could improve our quality of life by creating a sustainable, state-of-the-art transit system that would move more people into, out of and around the region we call home. It’s about offering more choices, linking people, neighborhoods and employers. Our entire region would be better connected.
The Project Connect system would bring a number of firsts to Austin, including light rail that runs north to south, through downtown and beneath the densest part of the city using a tunnel that would improve the speed, reliability and safety of the entire system. It would also cross the river and serve the burgeoning East Riverside corridor, connecting the airport to Central Austin and the larger transit system.
