The City of Austin is home to some of the earliest autonomous mobility testing in the nation.  Continuing a proactive and deliberate approach to these new mobility capabilities will ensure a future that is equitable, affordable, prosperous, and data-driven. And where would we be without a map?

The City of Austin and Capital Metro’s Smart Mobility Roadmap encompasses five key areas:

  • Shared-Use Mobility
  • Electric Vehicles and Infrastructure
  • Autonomous Vehicles
  • Data and Technology, and
  • Land Use and Infrastructure

The Smart Mobility Roadmap is divided into three sections:

  • The first section provides insight into each of these areas as well as the convergence of technology. It also discusses national efforts related to shared, electric and autonomous mobility.
  • The second section looks at how this technology may affect Austin's equity, affordability and safety and workforce.  
  • The final section discusses the current Council and Board resolutions and initiatives and describes how executing a plan like this may impact projects and operational resources.
