It’s almost here – a draft transit plan!

What we’ve heard

We have been busy reviewing the system and listening to you, our community, about how to improve Capital Metro. The Transit Priorities Survey we hosted on Connections2025.org from May 25 through June 24, received more than 500 responses. In it, you let us know your priorities given the reality of limited funding.

So what did we hear?  87% voted for improving frequency (more service, more often on key corridors) over wider coverage within Capital Metro’s service area (service to more destinations, less often). This information, combined with the input we’ve received from riders and community members throughout this process, helps guide us as we draft our new transit network. Open houses will continue in September. Thanks for taking the time to shape the future of transit in Central Texas. Visit Connections2025.org to view the full survey results!

bus_congress_0112South Congress Avenue (SoCo) isn’t just an iconic Austin street, it’s a Texas landmark. Sloping gently down to a view of the Texas Capitol, it’s a grand avenue littered with restaurants, shopping, bars, and events. Not to mention a constant supply of live music. With only a limited amount of time in town, it’s hard to find the best spots — unless we turn it into a game! Join us for a sunset SoCo Scavenger Hunt followed by an American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Social Hour at Guero’s Taco Bar.

MAKE IT A TRANSIT ADVENTURE!  The CapMetro Team team is providing FREE DAY PASSES so you can enjoy a silly sojourn up-and-down the SoCo Strip! Are you ready to #TryTransit?

It’s an exciting time for Connections 2025 – we’re moving forward from data gathering and analysis to developing preliminary recommendations for service changes. First, we are looking at developing overall goals and strategies for service planning before we get down to the route-by-route details.

Capital Metro’s Board of Directors recently discussed some key issues for Connections 2025. Click here to view the meeting conversation.

Transit Priorities Survey

Help us shape the direction of Connections 2025! We’ve posted a new, brief survey and are looking for input from all Central Texans – riders and non-riders. The survey includes four questions to gauge opinions on some of the tradeoffs involved in a project like Connections 2025. With a limited amount of funding available for transit service, Capital Metro needs to make choices on how to balance competing priorities – for example, is it more important to improve frequency, or provide more coverage within Capital Metro’s service area? See below for examples.

Visit Connections2025.org to complete the survey!
