Get Involved with Project Connect

Project Connect is a plan to create a system of high capacity transit (HCT) options to connect people, places and opportunities in an affordable, efficient and sustainable way. The term “high capacity” refers to transit that travels in its own dedicated lane or track—free of traffic congestion.
 
With your help, we’ll create a regional mobility vision that will take a multi-generational investment to connect people and places across Central Texas through HCT. This plan will improve Capital Metro’s existing services and build new services with greater people-moving capacity.

Green Line Virtual Open House

The Green Line is proposed along Capital Metro's existing freight line between Austin and Elgin. Improvements would include developing transit stations along the corridor that would provide great places to connect the community to efficient, reliable transit.

Capital Metro is currently working on a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Study for the Green Line to plan for future growth in Northeast Austin in a way that allows people to walk to more things and use transit as part of their daily life.

The Orange Line Virtual Open House #2

In the second Orange Line Virtual Open House, we invited you to help us make some important decisions about how the Orange Line would operate. We looked at the pros and ---- of such issues as whether the transitway should run below, above, or at ground level and discuss where potential stations could be located.
