It's Go Time!

Project Connect. A comprehensive transit plan designed for Austin.

Our community has decided it's go time. This YES vote for funding Project Connect is a huge step toward creating a more equitable and livable city, providing more and better ways for people to access jobs, education, health care and new opportunities.


Project Connect is a bold transit plan that includes a new rail system, a downtown transit tunnel that makes everyone's trip faster, an expanded bus system and a transition to an all-electric fleet.
