The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CapMetro) proposes to implement the Blue Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, an 8.2-mile dedicated transitway from Republic Square in Downtown Austin to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS). The exclusive transitway is proposed to operate at street level (center running) throughout most of the corridor, with elevated sections at the southern end of the corridor between Metro Center and AUS, a tunnel section in downtown, and a new bridge across Lady Bird Lake.
