The future of transportation is here, and Leander (with Capital Metro and Austin) is leading the way in Central Texas.
Leander’s journey into the future of transportation isn’t necessarily new when you consider the first trains arrived in 1884. Like then, the opportunities surrounding the train station (and Lea der’s Park-and-Ride) are limitless.
Transportation resource improvements allow for more efficient movements of goods, services and people in the market place. The more transportation resources available the more money is able to flow throughout an area. Capital Metro Rail enhances existing City, County, CTRMA and CAMPO transportation resources. The proposed rail station and park-and-ride provide a node that will concentrate economic activity at the heart of Leander’s award-winning Transit Oriented Development (TOD).
While most transportation systems provide linear movement, Capital Metro has created a “target” for products and services to be delivered. This resource focuses market activities, lends efficiencies to goods and services access and enhances a sense of place. Making higher education available to those outside Leander is one example, should Austin Community College or someone else build in Leander.
