City Council, District 3
Yes. I have lived in Austin for 23 years and having consistently utilized many forms of transportation, including being an avid commuting cyclist, I personally understand and fully support the vision of the Master Plan. I’ve seen first hand the growth of need for infrastructure around bicycling that has accompanied our population growth, both from the standpoint of safety and congestion mitigation. Any pragmatic effort to reduce or solve for congestion in Austin must unequivocally visualize a stronger infrastructure for multi-modal transportation (comprehensive improvements including that address sidewalks and public transit) with bicycling as an integral element.
