SYSTEM PLAN PARK & RIDES
Artist conceptual rendering for illustration only.
The Project Connect System Plan includes 24 new Park & Rides that would allow for residents of outlying parts of Austin and nearby cities to connect into the transit system. They would provide a starting point or destination for customers and a chance to connect to additional transportation options.
Capital Metro currently has 17 Park & Rides, and the System Plan would create an additional 24 (including 10 outside the service area). There would be increased parking with security lighting.

About “Initial Investment” & “System Plan”
A ballot measure for the Project Connect Initial Investment will be on the November 2020 ballot.
It was a collaborative process between the Capital Metro board and the Austin City Council that resulted in the Initial Investment portion of Project Connect being put before voters this year. Leading up to the November election, the governing bodies took the following actions:
- August 13: The Austin City Council voted to include Project Connect's Initial Investment on the November ballot. The vote approved an ordinance ordering an election to authorize and fund the Project Connect Initial Investment of $7.1 billion.
- August 7: The Initial Investment proposal was adopted by the Capital Metro board and approved by the Austin City Council. It includes a portion of the System Plan, which will advance through development and be considered for both local and federal funding. Not all of the System Plan's elements are included in the Initial Investment.
- June 10: The Project Connect System Plan was adopted by the Capital Metro board and approved by the Austin City Council.
