Please join us at an upcoming Project Connect community meeting! The meetings are come-and-go, so swing by whenever you have time.

Project Connect is our community plan for a complete system of reliable and frequent transit with congestion-proof services that operates free from other traffic.

Where are the routes going? How should we cross the river? What is the cost and environmental impact? What type of vehicle should we use? Join us for these conversations and more—let’s work together to ease traffic and keep our community connected.

The proposed Project connect Orange Line will be a north/ south transit line that offers more frequent, reliable travel to, from and within Central Austin and the surrounding region.
It would provide high-capacity service within dedicated transitways and establish the north/south link to the broader system.

The Orange Line would operate along the existing 801 route from the North Lamar Transit Center to Stassney Lane, with possible extensions north to Tech Ridge and south to Slaughter Lane.

High-capacity transit service between established and planned destinations would encourage more transit-supportive land use around places people want to be. Key destinations along the Orange Line include The Triangle, UT, the Texas Capitol, Republic Square, Auditorium Shores, South Congress (SoCo) and St. Edward’s University.

The proposed Blue Line would offer high-capacity transit that operates along Trinity Street, over Lady Bird Lake, and along East Riverside Drive to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS).

It would provide high-capacity transit within dedicated transitways, and establish a dedicated transitway across Lady Bird Lake for improved connectivity with the broader Capital Metro system.

High-capacity transit service between established and planned activity centers would encourage more transit-supportive land use around places people want to be. Key activity centers along the Blue Line include the UT east campus area, the Medical District, the Texas State Capitol Complex, Downtown, the Austin Convention Center, East Riverside Drive, and AUS.
