Did you know there’s a $7.1 billion plan to improve Austin’s transit system on the Nov. 3rd ballot? Learn what this taxpayer investment might mean for Austin’s Black community.

Hosted by the Black Leaders Collective, this roundtable is an opportunity to learn from the leaders of Capital Metro, the City of Austin, Travis County and PUMA about the upcoming mobility plan and the bond items on the ballot. You will be able to ask questions after presentations by these representatives.

The discussion will address:
– How proposed transportation plans benefit and detract from the quality of life for Black residents (i.e. housing displacement)
– The anticipated amount of economic investment in Black businesses and Black communities as result of passage of this $7.1 billion plan
– How equity is addressed in the plan
– What improvements will be made to routes, buses and bus stops in Black communities
– The anticipated amount of economic investment in Black businesses and Black communities as a result of the passage of this $7.1 billion plan
