Make a Difference by Joining a Working Group

Project Connect will transform Austin, and we want your help shaping the development of this important transit initiative. As part of a working group, you will volunteer with your neighbors and local businesses to meet with the project design team, give honest feedback and help the design team understand more about how Project Connect can best serve our community.

How to get involved: Click the button at right to review the map of the projected light rail routes and stations, and then select the ‘Join a Working Group’ button to sign up for the working groups you want to be involved in. Working groups will meet several times a year to discuss the Orange and Blue line projects.
