Austin Transportation Department asking for citizen input

Tired of sitting in a parking lot that is supposed to be IH-35? Do you have some good ideas on how to fix Austin’s transportation system?  The Austin Transportation Department wants to hear what you have to say.

The Austin Mobility Program (AMP) will be hosting a series of six forums throughout the week to get input from citizens on how to improve the transportation system in Austin.

The goal of the Austin Mobility Forum is to make it easier to move around our city. From roads to rail to buses, bicycles, and sidewalks, our transportation system can provide us all with better options and a better quality of life.

The City has collected more than 1,200 needed transportation projects from citizens to date. This is more than we can pay for at once. AMP is asking for help  from the public to determine the community values and priorities for Austin’s mobility system.

Times and locations for the Austin Mobility Forums are listed below. Everyone is welcome, and every opinion matters. Refreshments are provided.
