Austin residents are invited to share feedback in February on Project Connect, the city’s plan to add a 9.8-mile light rail with 15 stops throughout Central Austin.


Austin Transit Partnership, the group spearheading Project Connect, is requesting feedback related to the project’s Environmental Impact Statement, a study that will analyze the environmental impacts of building the light rail. ATP is required to prepare an EIS for the first phase of the project under the National Environmental Policy Act.
