Traffic Light

The Active Transportation and Street Design Division designs projects with a "complete streets" approach to provide people of all ages and abilities safe and comfortable travel options - whether you are rolling, walking or driving.

The City of Austin’s Project Connect Office works collaboratively with other City departments and our Project Connect partners, Austin Transit Partnership and Capital Metro to implement the Project Connect components.

It is a component of the Austin Strategic Mobility Plan.
