What is your vision for the future of high capacity transit in Austin?

Natasha Harper-Madison

City Council, District 1

Austin is reaching the tipping point where high capacity transit is essential. I believe the best way to add high capacity transit is to track the bus routes with top ridership. Right now, those are found in the Guadalupe-Lamar corridor. I would support a high capacity rail line along that street, as a central spine of Austin’s future transit system. While this is a great goal, in order to support this initiative we need to address our current land use code and subsequent funding for affordable housing.
