Transit Track

The hardest place to make transit work is often where it is needed most: active streets in tight urban spaces. Capital Metro and the City of Austin have invited national leaders in transit from three cities for a vibrant discussion of how Austin can make its streets great for transit. The speakers – from a transit agency, a city DOT, and a comprehensive agency – will highlight how transit agencies and city departments are working together to surmount challenges in design, operations, and planning to create faster, more reliable on-street transit. They will discuss how to assign scarce street space to transit service, solve the sometimes devilish details of geometric design for multimodal service, and create whole streets that support transit in the long term. Capital Metro and the City of Austin will discuss how these ideas might be applied in the unique context of Austin.
