CTRMA Kicks In Funds for Study of Aerial Gondola System

Austin Monitor reports that “the [Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority] board of directors approved without any dissent a small stipend to study the feasibility of a proposed gondola system in South Austin. ‘We’re not a pavement company; we’re a mobility company,’ said Chair Ray Wilkerson of the agency more typically known for its toll road projects.” The report adds that CTRMA will kick in $5,250 to match contributions by the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the City of Austin to pay for the Texas A&M Transportation Institute study.
