AUSTIN, Texas - Capital Metro is inviting Austin residents to attend a virtual open house for Project Connect.
According to CapMetro, the virtual open house is intended to welcome a new round of feedback on the Project Connect plan. The virtual open house is designed to allow visitors to chose "their own path" when it comes to learning about Project Connect.
"From a quick high-level look at the overall plan for those with limited time, to in-depth sections about the system features with integrated engagement surveys to collect feedback, the online experience is designed for anyone to be able to partake. It and upcoming virtual community meetings are in preparation for the Capital Metro Board of Directors and City of Austin Council joint session on June 10," the company said in a press release.
The company says the plan has been 20 years in the making and has engaged more than 40,000 people since 2018.

Project Connect is designed to expand transit capacity and offer more choices while better connecting the entire Central Texas region, the company mentions.
“We are listening to the community and hear that people want to improve mobility in Austin and our surrounding areas. It will not get substantially better without a significant investment in transit,” said CapMetro President and CEO Randy Clarke. "Project Connect is an integrated transit system that will bring jobs to our region, improve the environment, and better connect people so everyone can thrive in our community."
