About Austin Transit Partnership

The Austin Transit Partnership (ATP) was formed by the City of Austin and CapMetro after Austin voted in November 2020 to implement Project Connect, which includes expanded transit options throughout the Austin area with new light rail, a subway, and more services across the city.

The Austin Transit Partnership serves as the independent local government corporation tasked with implementing Project Connect.
