Transportation Choice

There's no bigger issue facing Austin and District 6 than traffic.  Addressing this problem will require evaluating all possible options covering short, mid, and long-term ideas.

  • Expand my Northwest Austin Coalition's innovative citizen-led corridor study process that can save taxpayers millions of dollars and help deliver road and bus improvements faster, at a lower cost, and with more citizen engagement
  • Focus road and public transit infrastructure on connected corridors and end the practice of planning distinct nodes without considering their connectivity
  • Combine land use and transportation planning efforts to ensure infrastructure matches the current and future needs of residents and businesses
  • Ensure city policies support a robust, fair, and competitive marketplace for a variety private transportation options
  • Fully oppose my opponent's proposal to build a multi-billion dollar loop highway that would only serve residents outside the city, dramatically increase our taxes, and threatens to tear down existing neighborhoods and current protected green space
  • Fully oppose my opponents proposed highway through the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve that would turn Spicewood Springs Road into a highway, increase the risk of wildfires, and do nothing to address actual traffic
