Let's Talk Station Alignment

Stations Overview

Austin has never before had a light rail station! So we are excited to share with you what they could look like and how they would function. As part of this virtual open house, we’ll also share the analysis conducted to identify potential Orange and Blue Line stations and how they would fit within our community. There are up to 21 stations planned along the Orange Line route and up to 11 stations for the Blue Line route with service anticipated every 10-15 minutes.

We look forward to your input as we continue to move forward developing Project Connect.

Project Connect Overview

There are 150 people moving to Central Texas every day—translating to 70 more cars on the road each day. Single-occupancy vehicles account for 75 percent of commuters on the road, and the greater Austin area’s population is estimated to double to four million by 2040. Project Connect will provide more transportation options to move people to their destinations.

Project Connect is a bold transit plan designed for Austin that includes a new rail system, a downtown transit tunnel that makes everyone's trip faster, an expanded bus system and a transition to an all-electric fleet.

In November of 2020, Austin voters approved a generational investment for our community. The YES vote for Project Connect is a huge step toward creating a more equitable and livable city, providing more and better ways for people to access jobs, education, health care and new opportunities. 

We now have an approved plan, a schedule and the dedicated funding to create a more connected and equitable community. As we continue the federal environmental review process for various projects, we need your input.

The orange line runs north and south through Austin with proposed stations at Tech Ridge Transit Center, Parmer, Braker, Rundberg, North Lamar Transit Center, Crestview, Koenig, Triangle, Hyde Park, Hemphill Park, University of Texas West Mall, Capitol West, Government Center, Republic Square, Auditorium Shores, Soco, Oltorf, Saint Edwards University, South Congress Transit Center, Stassney, William Cannon and Slaughter Transit Center. The blue line runs east to west through Austin with proposed stations at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Metrocenter, Montopolis, Faro, Riverside, Lakeshore, Travis Heights, Waterfront, MACC Rainey, Downtown Station, and Republic Square. The Blue Line will then continue service north to the North Lamar Transit Center using the Orange Line Alignment, with proposed stations at Government Center, Capitol West, University of Texas West Mall, Hemphill Park, Hyde Park, Triangle, Koenig, Crestview, and the North Lamar Transit Center.
