Choose the Corridors

Project Connect identified potential Investment Corridors by reviewing recent and existing community planning efforts that have recommended transit investment along transportation corridors serving the Capital of Texas region. We organized these corridors into 3 transit market types (Commuter, Connector and Circulator) that were defined based on their similar travel needs and characteristics.

Now that we’ve evaluated the corridors, we need you to help us by choosing which potential Investment Corridors move on to the next phase!

Use the form below to give us your input.

Commuter Corridors

  • Extend beyond the focus area and serve as alternatives to highways or expressways connecting the Greater Austin project area.
  • Typically are established highway or rail corridors through suburban or rural environments that end in downtown Austin.
  • Have high population and employment densities on both ends of the routes with a low concentration of trip generators and activity centers in between.
  • Experience a majority of transit demand from riders commuting from one city to another for work, trips that typically occur during the morning and evening rush hours.

Connector Corridors

  • Are major arterial roadways that provide access between activity centers within Austin’s central core.
  • Serve high population and employment density corridors with several different concentrations of activity centers.
  • Experience a high demand for trips to local employment and activity centers, resulting in a more steady demand for traffic, not just during morning and evening rush hours.

Circulator Corridors

  • Are last-mile connectors serving the densest areas of the focus area and Austin’s central business district, providing circulating service within the downtown area and to adjacent activity centers.
  • Generally connect major activity centers around the downtown, central business district and/or entertainment districts.
  • Experience consistent demand throughout the day, with no true peak period, because passenger trips are usually not to and from home.
  • Can move commuters around downtown after they arrive via transit from other areas.
