<<In a report, experts assembled by the Urban Land Institute identified 1,350 acres within Austin that could fit into the city’s current zoning framework for “transit-oriented development,” or TOD. Anchored by a transit station, a TOD features a mix of office, residential, retail, entertainment, and other spaces in a compact walkable and bikeable area.>>



Great post! Good to see someone thinking about how transportation and housing can work together to create opportunities for a wide range of people in Austin. As someone thinking about moving there next summer, but not looking forward to becoming car-dependent again, this was very helpful. Hopefully Austin doubles down on public transport and continues to grow in a smart way.

@Matt Stricklen @Chris Bowe It will all be up to the voters in November. Austin has a weak history of supporting public transportation systems overall. They have approved bonds for better bus routes and bike lanes but voted down several light rail system proposals over the past 20+ years. The Project Connect vote next month will determine the direction of mass transit in Austin for the next 20 years.
