New ATX website offers transportation options at a swipe
Wednesday, September 4, 2019 by Tai Moses
A new website launched by Austin Transportation aims to serve as the “ultimate resource for information about sustainable transportation options in Austin,” according to a press release about the initiative. GetThereATX is part of the city’s effort to meet the Austin Strategic Mobility Plan‘s goal of 50/50 mode share by 2039; in other words, asking Austinites to use alternative modes of transportation such as walking, cycling, carpooling, public transportation and ride-sharing in place of drive-alone trips. The colorful, easy-to-navigate website is a “one-stop shop” filled with information on all of Austin’s mobility options as well as educational resources and “specific trip solutions for commuters, employers, schools, special events and visitors.” If you’re trying to get around Austin, GetThereATX should be your first stop.
