In this episode of The Austin Common Radio Hour, host Amy Stansbury goes over the basics of Prop A, which, if approved by voters in November, could bring a $7.1 billion transit system to Austin. We also take a deep dive into Austin’s transportation history (including 2 failed transit elections & century-old streetcars) & explore how equity is addressed in Prop A.
