Open house and survey now available or phase two of the Austin Core Transportation Plan


The Austin Core Transportation (ACT) Plan is a study of transportation and mobility options into, out of, through and within Downtown Austin. Austin Transportation is holding a virtual open house and conducting a survey to develop the ACT Plan and learn more about the community's mobility preferences downtown.

This open house is presenting information and options about space trade-offs downtown, and the survey is open to hear from the community about preferences. In the survey, you will be asked to consider trade-offs related to space provided on downtown streets to accommodate bicycles, micromobility (scooters), public transit and vehicles. You can also share your opinion about converting one-way streets to two-way operations in the future.

In 2022, during phase one of outreach, ATD staff worked with more than 70 local stakeholder groups and community organizations, heard from hundreds of community members at in-person events, and received more than 2,100 survey responses to identify what mobility elements people preferred downtown. You can find a summary of what we heard here.

Phase two of the ACT Plan reflects that input from phase one as well as the latest information from partner mobility organizations on major upcoming projects such as Capital Express Central and Project Connect.

You can take the survey and view the open house here. If you have any questions or issues regarding the survey or the ACT Plan, please email ACTPlan@AustinTexas.gov.
