Austin Mobility

Mobility is a subject that comes up often in architectural circles around Austin. Understandably so, with Austin ranking in the top ten cities in the country for traffic congestion and commute times. For years the city has talked about possible solutions ranging from light rail, to subways to autonomous vehicles and even a sky tram over Lady Bird Lake. In a way open market capitalism has introduced several alternatives without being one broad solution; ride-sharing, carpool sharing, Car2Go, motorized scooters and bicycles have given the populus alternatives to dealing directly with traffic. And now Capital Metro, the governing agency for mass transit in Austin, has unveiled their latest idea - light rail coupled with autonomous buses. To read more about their plans check out the article in the Austin Business Journal.
