Join us to participate in the upcoming 2019 City:One Challenge. 

Connecting neighborhoods to hubs

How can we help people to get around their neighborhoods when Capital Metro buses and other traditional modes are not an option?

We are looking for solutions that help make it easy for everyone to travel from their front door to the bus stop or grocery store one mile away.

As you think about solutions, consider:

  • Connecting “winding” neighborhoods to key healthy living points-of-interest and mass transit
  • Coordinating community programs and private businesses to share the same private transportation (e.g., two non-profits and one business uses the same van at different points in the day)
  • Accounting for those community members that cannot afford a $3 transit fee
  • Helping people physically (and emotionally) get out of their front door and easily into a mode of transit
