CapMetro & City’s Teamwork Make Dream Work

A few years ago, Capital Metro and the city of Austin teamed up to make our streets work better for everyone who uses them, whether they’re on a bus, in a car, on a bike or on their own two feet.

The two teams have worked together to install new transit lanes on West 5th, Lavaca and Riverside. But they’ve also completed projects throughout the city that have made our sidewalks more connected and accessible, our bike lanes more protected and plentiful, and our streets safer and more easily navigable.

This kind of close collaboration between city government and the transit agency helped make our Cap Remap bus network redesign so successful and played a part in the passage of both Project Connect‘s Prop A and Prop B’s Active Transportation and Safety Bond in 2020.

We work best when we work together, and Austin’s transportation system works best when it offers people choices for how to get around: buses and trains when they work for you, bikes and walking when possible and cars when that works better for the situation.

The combined team published a report chronicling all of our work this week called Streets for Transit.

Let’s Talk Business

If you’re a business owner, you might want to listen to this one.

The construction of Project Connect’s program of projects is going to bring thousands of jobs to the Austin area, and transit projects like these also bring big opportunities for your business to work with CapMetro.

Accelerate is an opportunity for local businesses to be prepared when CapMetro projects go public. In this live chat, Capital Metro President and CEO Randy Clarke will talk about the economic opportunities that come with investments in transit and how local businesses can earn contracts to work with CapMetro on these projects.

No matter what your business may be, whether you have a product or service you think is perfect for the agency, want to place advertisements on our vehicles or at our stations or, really, anything you can think of, CapMetro provides so many different ways to work with businesses and we’re happy to collaborate with you!

Transit keeps the entire region moving. Help us continue our progress with businesses like yours.

Accelerate — Thursday, February 11 from 2 to 3 p.m.
