Austin, TX affordable housing map illustrates perks of transit proximity

  • Date: 09/14/2020
  • The City of Austin, TX has created an interactive map tracking the proximity of income-restricted housing to available transit, ahead of a Nov. 3 vote on a proposed $7.1 billion transit expansion dubbed Project Connect.
  • The map, developed by the city's Neighborhood Housing and Community Development department, plots Austin’s 26,663 income-restricted affordable housing units in relation to the city’s Transit Priority Network and Project Connect's proposed transit developments.
  • The tool shows that 25% of the income-restricted affordable housing units fall within a quarter-mile walking distance of a proposed Project Connect station, and 58% are within a half-mile walking distance to a proposed station.
