Project Connect: Green Line Virtual Open House

Project Connect

Central Texas is rapidly changing. Our population just hit 2 million and it’s projected to double by 2040. In that same time, road capacity is expected to increase by only 15 percent. We need a change.

Capital Metro is working with the community to develop a new, comprehensive transit vision to improve existing transit services and develop new, high-capacity public transportation projects that provide efficient travel options into, out of, and around Central Texas. We call this vision, Project Connect.

Project Connect is all about developing innovative solutions that move more people; a complete system of reliable and frequent transit with congestion-proof services that operate free from other traffic.

What is happening on the Green Line?

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. TOD orients development towards transit services so riders are able to walk easily to things such as: daycares, grocery stores, your job, clinics, your home, and many other places within 15 minutes. This study will help put in place the land use regulations to encourage this type of development and allow more opportunities for affordable housing near transit.
