Project Connect: The Rail

Project Connect Logo index


Traffic congestion in Austin costs everyone time and money, diminishes our quality of life, and continues to increase as Central Texas grows.
Capital Metro, the City of Austin, CAMPO, the Lone Star Rail District, and other partners are working together to improve long-term mobility and accessibility, support local and regional growth objectives, and meet community needs by helping families:
–          Gain more transportation options
–          Have better access to affordable housing
–          Connect to employment and education centers
–          Create and sustain vibrant local communities
To learn more about Project Connect and the Urban Rail recommendation, please join us at any of the following neighborhood open houses, and visit to stay informed. Please forward this message to anyone else you think might be interested in the future of transportation in Central Texas. If you cannot make it to one of these open houses, we will come to you!
