Join us at a Virtual Meeting

We're hosting virtual meetings through March 2021 for the Orange Line, Blue Line and MetroRapid expansion projects. Don't have time to join a scheduled meeting? Visit the self-guided virtual public meetings.

Notice: In light of Winter Storm Uri, we are extending the public scoping period for the Orange and Blue Line to March 12, and the comment period for the Pleasant Valley and Expo MetroRapid lines to March 19, 2021.


Join us for a series of one-hour live virtual public scoping meetings focused on Project Connect's Orange and Blue Line projects. The scoping phase provides the opportunity for the public to learn about the Orange and Blue Line projects and the federal environmental review process required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

Capital Metro will share information about the Project Connect program and will discuss the scoping process - the first step in getting federal environmental clearance for the project - including the project's draft purpose, needs, goals and objectives; the project's stakeholders; and next steps in the environmental and engineering process. Participants are invited to submit questions to CapMetro staff during a live question and answer session. Your feedback will guide design and environmental analysis for the Orange and Blue Lines.

  • The public scoping period will run from Jan. 25 – March 12, 2021. Return to this website during this time to view presentation content and provide feedback as part of our self-guided virtual open house. You can also share your comments via phone, email and mail.
  • Translation requests: Three live virtual meetings in English and one in Spanish will be held for each of the Orange and Blue Line projects. Requests for language translations or accommodations must be made to Capital Metro at least three working days (72 hours) prior to the virtual scheduled meeting date by calling 512-904-0180.
