The following information has been received from Capital Metro:

Capital Metro will host a series of public outreach meetings beginning September 25th to introduce Austin to what would be the most significant transformation of its bus network in the agency’s 32-year history. The proposed changes, if approved by the board of directors November 15, would go into effect in June 2018.

The transit agency began preparation for this change in October 2015, when planners initiated work on the Connections 2025 Transit Plan. If approved, the proposal would bring changes to more than half of Capital Metro’s 82 bus routes. The High-Frequency Network would increase from six to 14 routes, improving bus frequencies to 15-minute intervals, seven days a week. The changes would also greatly improve east-west connections.

While we hope that everybody will be able to attend one of our public meetings or webinars, Capital Metro would also love to come to your neighborhood association to present and answer any questions your community may have. If you have space available on an upcoming agenda, please let us know and I will ensure that members of our Community Involvement and Planning teams can attend.

Thank you in advance.
