This week Shades of Green focuses on several transportation plans the City of Austin is developing. Plus, we discussed how citizens can get involved in the discussion and help chart the future
Our guest was Melissa Ayala , the Communications Specialist with Capital Metro Austin’s prime mobility organization.
- Melissa presented the new Connections 2025 plan (which is designed to boost ridership and increase frequency on our city’s bus lines). The plan was just approved by Cap Metro’s Board on Monday.
- We also covered the re-launch of Project Connect. Project Connect is a plan designed to create a system of high-capacity transit options that will connect people, places and opportunities in an affordable, efficient and sustainable way. The goals of Project Connect are to identify and evaluate potential transit projects over the next two years. Capital Metro will work with local agencies, stakeholders and the public to identify high-capacity transit solutions that will offer options for travel into, out of and around Central Austin.
- And last but not least, Melissa discussed Cap Metro’s upcoming event – Traffic Jam, A Mobility Solutions Workshop on Saturday, March 4th from 8:30am to 1pm at the Bullock Museum
