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

Steve Adler


We need a regional high capacity transit system, and I look forward to the release of CapMetro’s Project Connect plan on October 1. The most critical element of a high capacity transit system is that we need dedicated pathways that aren’t shared with cars. Whether it is automated electric buses or light rail, we need to consider all of the options and the relative cost of each.

The community conversation kicks off soon and I have a goal of achieving a community-wide system plan by the 2020 election, where we can potentially get something on the ballot to start the work that we need to do.
