Sign for Better Transit!

CapMetro has a plan to start having buses come every 10-15 minutes along Manor Rd., Martin Luther King Jr, Blvd., Enfield Rd., East 7th St., Metric Blvd., William Cannon Dr., Stassney Ln., and South 1st St., and many others; but the board is having second thoughts. If you support having frequent bus service along these major streets, please sign below and send a message in favor of this bold new plan.  For more information on why this is a good idea, please read here.

    A first-class city needs first-class public transit!

    Please include East Austin neighborhoods in the transit plans. There is NO reason that it should take 45 minutes by bus to reach downtown Austin from my home in CENTRAL Austin. Austin rail needs to be expanded to reach the airport and the Capitol (two of MANY needed stations). Other cities encourage visitors to use rail and public transit by making stops convenient and interchangeable. Why don’t we? My family would prefer to use public transit and CAN’T because of long wait times, limited hours and lack of direct routes to places like downtown, Zilker park etc. Shame on YOU Austin Metro for failing to provide our city with reliable public transportation.

    I ride the bus to work, and the increased connectivity and speed would be a boon to using the bus service more.

    I live in East Austin, and take route 465 for work at UT daily. This bus route is vital to my quality of life.
