NEWS FLASH: According to a source at City Hall, the Austin Transportation Department is slated to give a big presentation June 14 that will be “a substantial briefing” on urban rail and begins to start answering Uncle Lee’s 30 crucial questions and “then some.”
The mayor has pushed a 2012 bond election funding a first leg for a new mode of mass transit in Austin.
The briefing starts a little after 9:30 a.m., at City Hall and is viewable online. Inshallah, this hearing will be posted on replay and the pertinent parts will be cut and posted on YouTube.
Transportation is one of the most important issues facing Austin, and is even more important to the continued success of downtown. If you are interested in the urban core, this is an issue you need to be abreast of.
