Join Movability for an update on Project Connect, Capital Metro's plan to improve and expand transit in the region. Recommended features include adding new light rail, commuter rail, neighborhood circulators and MetroRapid lines across the city. Find out where the agency proposes adding congestion-free “transitways,” a downtown tunnel, and how the city of Austin is planning to fund it. Learn what the proposed changes could mean for your business and employees, and provide feedback to the Project Connect team.
Want to learn even more about Project Connect? To continue engaging with the community, the Project Connect Team is putting together monthly “Lunch & Learns.” The Lunch & Learns are an opportunity for the community to visit the Project Connect office on Congress Ave. and learn more about various aspects and benefits of Project Connect. The first Lunch and Learn will be on March 24th and the topic will be “Transit 101.” In this presentation, the team will discuss why transit is important, the different services offered by CapMetro, how to use the system, and conclude with explaining Project Connect plans. So, if you are new to Austin, want to learn how to use the transit system, or if you simply love public transportation and want to be informed, stay tuned for the event to pop up on Eventbrite to reserve your spot!
