Project Connect is a community effort and there are so many ways to get involved. Keep your eyes on this page for upcoming meetings and other opportunities to provide feedback as we implement this bold new transit plan.

Join us for Orange and Blue Line public meetings

Join Project Connect for in-person and virtual public meetings starting July 27 for the latest about the Orange and Blue Line projects, two light rail lines that will serve North, South, and East Austin, with connections to the airport. The project teams will share details on the current proposed design for each line and engage in discussion with the community.

We want to hear from you. Join us for one or more of these experiences:

Materials will be available in English and Spanish. For other language translations or accommodations, please call 512-904-0180. Requests must be made to Capital Metro at least three working days prior to the scheduled virtual meeting date.
