Tuesday press conference: 2016 Mobility Bond Election

On Tuesday morning, council members Greg Casar and Leslie Pool will announce a proposal to make a historic investment in Austin’s bicycle, sidewalk and trail network through a 2016 Mobility Bond Election.

This is a critical moment in our campaign to fund a holistic network of protected bike lanes, trails and sidewalks in Austin. Will you join us to back them up?

WHAT: Press Conference w/council members Casar and Pool
WHERE: City Hall Atrium, 301 W 2nd St

The council members’ proposal will fund critical safe routes to schools, patch our fragmented sidewalk network and make the most comprehensive investment ever in Austin’s protected bike lane and trail network. The plan also calls for protected bike lanes, complete sidewalks and dedicated bus lanes on some of Austin’s biggest, most dangerous corridors.

This kind of transformational change can only happen if we stand together to demand it. Will you join us on Tuesday to make your voice heard?
