Connections 2025: Let’s Make Transit Better Together

This is the second in a series of Capital Metro blog posts on its Service Plan.

commentsAt Capital Metro, we know our system isn’t perfect and agree that our bus service should change with the times. In 2010, we made a plan called Service Plan 2020 that resulted in some very real, major projects like MetroRapid, the first transit priority lanes in Austin, and a High-Frequency Route Network, just to name a few. These were all projects that we were able to roll out onto Austin’s streets in under five years. Connections 2025 is intended to work just like that.

We Need YOU

Beyond what we think Central Texas’ transit needs, it’s more important to ask YOU—our neighbors, both riders and non-riders. We’re hoping to leave no stone unturned in our community. We want to meet with our riders & operators, community leaders, social service agencies, any anyone else who’s interested, touching every council district in the most comprehensive way possible.

Get Involved

Without your comments, we don’t know what you’d like to see in this plan. We want to hear about your travel experience, transit wish-list, and even what you don’t like. Join us and let’s make transit better—together!
