The 2025 Austin Metropolitan Area Transportation Plan guides planning for the future of transportation in Austin.

The Austin Core Transportation (ACT) Plan is an update to the 2002 Downtown Austin Mobility Plan. Since 2002 there have been significant changes in the mobility landscape, which include updated planning for different travel modes; technological updates to metered parking; and the rise of new mobility services. This update will serve as a decision-making tool for transportation planning, project development, operations, and demand management, with the goal of making decisions more transparent and predictable for all stakeholders.

The Austin Strategic Mobility Plan (ASMP) is Austin’s new city-wide transportation plan. This plan will make it easier to get around Austin for years to come. Learn more about the ASMP.

El Plan Estratégico de Movilidad de Austin (ASMP, por sus siglas en inglés)  es el nuevo plan de transporte para toda la ciudad de Austin. Lea más en nuestro sitio web español ASMP.

Corridor Mobility Preliminary Engineering Reports

Corridor Mobility Preliminary Engineering Reports (PERs), or Corridor Plans, are a tool the City of Austin uses to assess a specific corridor’s mobility and safety deficiencies, and identify a vision for the long-term future of the corridor based on anticipated growth and City of Austin transportation policy.

Creative crosswalks use colors, textures, and patterns to enliven city streets as engaging and safe places for people. They can be designed to reflect the special character of a neighborhood, mark the gateway to a district, or otherwise create local identity and pride.

Creative crosswalks highlight marked pedestrian crossings. In addition to being fun, they can raise awareness of pedestrian safety.

A Dynamic Speed Display Device (DSDD) measures and displays the speed of vehicles approaching the face of the device. Typically, a speed limit sign is included with a DSDD to advise drivers of the speed limit at that point on the roadway. The Rotating DSDD Pilot Program is intended to be another tool in the ATD traffic engineering toolkit for ongoing speed monitoring.

Neighborhood block parties give neighbors a chance to connect, enjoy the public realm of the street, share information, and celebrate events together. The City of Austin encourages residents and neighborhood groups to organize block parties on their nearby residential streets through the program application process.

Austin is required by Texas law to designate a Non-Radioactive Hazardous Materials (NRHM) Route for non-radioactive, hazardous cargo traveling through Austin. The Austin Transportation Department is currently in the process of identifying this route.

Parking districts put your parking dollars to work, reinvesting parking meter funds in immediate district improvements like better sidewalks, street lighting and streetscape enhancements, park and open space maintenance, and bike and pedestrian improvements.

The Austin Pedestrian Safety Action Plan provides a comprehensive strategy for addressing pedestrian safety in service to a more walkable environment that contributes to Austin’s vision for a sustainable, socially equitable, affordable and economically prosperous city. The plan offers 21 key recommendations in engineering, education, enforcement, evaluation, policy/land use, and partners/funding to reduce and eliminate serious injury and fatal pedestrian crashes in Austin.

Austin’s Residential Permit Parking Program is an initiative designed to give residents a better chance of finding an on-street parking space in their neighborhood.

Shared Mobility Services incorporates both shared micromobility services (also known as dockless mobility) and shared vehicle services that are available for short-term rental in City of Austin Right-of-Way.

Austin Transportation Department is developing a new Speed Management Program to improve safety and enhance the livability of Austin streets through context-appropriate speed reduction strategies across the city. The objective of the program is to reduce the likelihood of serious injury and fatal crashes as well as reduce egregious speeding on all street levels.

The Austin Transportation Department is one of several governmental departments and agencies responsible for building, maintaining, and planning transportation in Austin. Here is a list of our partners and a little bit about what they do.

The Transportation Safety Improvement Program is housed within Transportation Engineering Division and plays a lead role in oversight, analyses, delivery of critical engineering safety improvements and implementation of Vision Zero’s engineering action plan.

Austin is consistently ranked as one of America's best places to live, but too many of our fellow Austinites die in traffic crashes each year. On average, an Austinite is killed in a crash every five days, and someone is seriously injured in a crash every 22 hours. Everyone we lose is someone's loved one, and each of these deaths and injuries is preventable. Vision Zero is our strategy for ending deaths and serious injuries on Austin roadways.
