WHAT IS THE RED LINE PARKWAY?
The Red Line Parkway is a planned linear park and public space that will follow the Capital Metro Red Line from Downtown Austin to Leander, approximately 36 miles, passing through several communities and natural areas along the way. About half of the trail is a top priority (Tier I) in the City of Austin Urban Trails Plan, and 10-20% is currently completed or funded.
The project has been a community interest since the early 1990s, and in 2004, voters approved the CapMetro Rail commuter line and right-of-way for the Red Line Trail.
Trails and parkways are the lifelines that connect communities, providing a sustainable and accessible transportation alternative for all.
By investing in the Red Line Parkway, we can build a future where people are connected, healthy, and thriving, while preserving our natural environment.
