Austin is facing a mobility crisis. Austinites know we can’t afford to build roads all over the region, but even if we could, it wouldn’t be the right choice for our environment. We need more choices and infrastructure that support moving as many people as possible on the roads we have right now.
The voters of Austin have approved hundreds of millions of dollars in the last three years to make significant improvements in our mobility infrastructure, and MoveATX supports implementing those improvements as quickly as possible in the most effective way possible.
The Austin City Council has also made significant progress in planning our mobility future, and MoveATX supports all of those efforts, including the Austin Strategic Mobility Plan, CapMetro’s Project Connect vision for high-capacity transit, the Bicycle Master Plan, the Urban Trails Master Plan, the Sidewalk Master Plan, and the VisionZero Action Plan.
Through a coordinated and targeted media and community engagement plan, MoveATX seeks to urge City of Austin staff and City Council members to move as quickly as possible to implement multi-modal infrastructure improvements related to the 2016 Mobility Bond and the 2018 Transportation Bond.
We all know that Austin has a mobility crisis, but by implementing some of the least costliest and easiest to engineer infrastructure improvements, we can have a big impact on the ability for Austinites to choose different modes of transportation. We can make a safer mobility future for everyone, whether they are traveling on foot, bike, scooter, bus, train, or in a car.
