I've read some posts on here about Project Connect in Austin and I just want to clarify what it is.
It isn't just a 3 Light-rail lines and a subway thru Down town for 7.5ish billion dollars
It's also
: 74miles of bus rapid transit lines
: Another commuter rail line
: Expanded service on the existing commuter rail
: An all electric fleet of busses
: Bike and Steet Improvements
: Multiple park and ride facilities
: New Housing for displaced peoples
and much more.
It's a big deal and will be an amazing improvement. It will assure that the fastest growing major city in the U.S can continue to be the fastest growing city in the U.S

A few videos of what it is
