Central Texas
Population Forecast

Austin is the 11th largest city in the country. We’re a growing region with 155 cars arriving every week and 4,500 people every month. At this rate, our population will double by 2040. Our roads can’t grow that fast. Like other big cities, we need a strong public transit system that accommodates growth and preserves our quality of life. That’s how we protect what we love about our region and what makes it a great place to live.

But we've got to get moving ... It's go time!
