Capital Metro to Host Series of Virtual Community Meetings

AUSTIN, Texas - Capital Metro will host a series of virtual community meetings with Capital Metro board members and Austin City Council members, as an alternative to in-person meetings that were planned for this spring.

Anyone can join the community meetings via Zoom links published to or view live streams on Capital Metro's Facebook page. There will be opportunities to participate in polling surveys and ask questions during a roundtable discussion.

During the meetings, participants can expect to discuss the Project Connect Recommended System Plan and how it could benefit the Austin community.

All meetings will be close-captioned for the hearing impaired.

This series of community meetings is in addition to the virtual open house that will stay live 24/7 on the Project Connect website until May 31.
