In Pflugerville’s Key to the City for May 26-31, 2012, city residents are invited to an open house on June 19, 2012, at the Pflugerville Justice Center to provide input about alternate routes for providing rail service into some of the cities north of Austin.
An alternative not mentioned is not to expand rail service north.
For a number of years the Coalition on Sustainable Transportation (COST) has made the case that expanding rail service in the Austin area is generally not cost effective.
Appearing very recently is “Austin Transit Working Group Meetings: Critique and Comment.”
It is possible that more familiarity with studies performed by COST could lead residents to provide higher quality input with respect to transportation issues.
