CTRMA’s “Beleaguered Plan” for Park-and-Ride Lots Gets a Boost

Austin Monitor reports that a plan to build several “transit-oriented” park-and-ride lots along Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority toll roads got a shot in the arm on January 9. “The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization [CAMPO] voted overwhelmingly to formally approve an agreement with [CTRMA] and the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority on a collaboration to plan, pay for and build” the new facilities. Funding approval from two counties (Travis and Williamson) is still required, and environmentalists have raised some concerns, but CAMPO’s action moved the project forward.
