Connect to Central Texas’ Transit Vision

Project Connect is the vision for Central Texas’ high-capacity transit system. Linking activity centers within the fastest growing region in the country, Project Connect aims to connect people, places and opportunities in an easy, efficient way. Our vision unites efforts to develop the best solutions for getting around Central Texas and addressing our growth challenges.

Central Texas is on a lot of “best of” lists, but traffic isn’t one of them. In fact, the 2012-13 INRIX Traffic Scorecard Annual Report ranks Austin fourth in the U.S for time wasted in traffic, worse than Houston and New York City! There’s no single solution to our region’s growing traffic congestion, so we need an ‘all of the above’ strategy to add capacity and give people options.
