Click here to see the Project Connect Vision Map: take a closer look at the regional vision and its transit options to gain a better understanding of what Project Connect is all about.

Project Connect is the vision for Central Texas’ high-capacity transit system. Linking activity centers within the fastest growing region in the country, Project Connect aims to connect people, places and opportunities in an easy, efficient way. Our vision unites efforts to develop the best solutions for getting around Central Texas and addressing our growth challenges. This is the place to learn more about Project Connect.

Central Texas is on a lot of “best of” lists, but traffic isn’t one of them. In fact, the 2012-13 INRIX Traffic Scorecard Annual Report ranks Austin fourth in the U.S for time wasted in traffic, worse than Houston and New York City! There’s no single solution to our region’s growing traffic congestion, so we need an ‘all of the above’ strategy to add capacity and give people options.

“The Transit Working Group analyzed a tremendous amount of data over this past year, to help us define a vision for a regional transit system to set Central Texas on a great path to move forward. The result is a plan that runs from Georgetown to Round Rock and Leander, takes several routes through the City of Austin and then continues on to Oak Hill and San Marcos.”
