About Us

Transit Forward works to inform and engage a coalition of transit supporters and the community at-large in order to champion the benefits of a regional public transit system.

We believe that robust public transit plays a vital role in building a more equitable, sustainable and dynamic Central Texas region.

We mobilize transit supporters through engagement activities, events and other opportunities for public input to ensure on-time, on-budget delivery of voter-approved transit projects.
