The CAMPO Regional Transit Study will examine transit needs in the six-county region, excluding the Capital Metro service area, and provide guidance to transit providers and local governments about how to meet future transit needs. This study will consider current and projected travel patterns, population and employment growth, and activity and employment centers in an effort to determine where transit connections should be prioritized to create a seamless, well-connected regional transit network.
The Regional Transit Study focuses on long-term transit ideas for rural and suburban areas of the CAMPO region. This study supplements Project Connect and Capital Metro’s planning work with the goal of providing a seamless, regional network of transit options in the six-county CAMPO area. The study does not preclude current or future planning initiatives – such as Project Connect – or services offered by Capital Metro within their service area. With some of the fastest growing counties in the country, this study also offers guidance to areas that will outgrow their CARTS qualifications in the coming decades. A comprehensive, coordinated, regional transit network is essential in addressing the region’s future growth, travel needs, and transportation options and the Regional Transit Study serves as the blueprint for planning for Central Texas’ transit future.
