The Austin Strategic Mobility Plan (ASMP) was adopted by City Council on April 11. The goal outlined in the ASMP is to decrease the number of solo commuters from 74% to 50% over the next 20 years. This can be accomplished by moving people to other transportation options such as public transit, telecommuting and other solo-driving alternatives. 

Some strategies for implementing alternatives include: 

  • Improving the public transit system
  • Encouraging ride-sharing
  • Tweaking street design
  • Improving the trail system
  • Enhancing the city’s bike lanes
  • Adding hundreds of miles of sidewalks
  • Increasing pedestrian safety
  • Promoting self-driving cars
