2014 will see a new chapter in the saga of Austin transit. The new MetroRapid promises faster trips, free wifi, and a mobile app for buying tickets and knowing when a bus will arrive. There are a number of factors in delivering a faster ride, including the ability to influence stop lights and dedicated lanes, but also less frequent (and thus fewer) stops. One of those stops will be named for Rosedale and will be part of the Burnet/Lamar route 803.
Rosedale has been selected for a Neighborhood Traffic Calming Project by the City of Austin Transportation Division. A Working Group that includes neighborhood residents and city representatives is developing a plan for traffic calming in Rosedale. Once completed, the City will distribute this plan to all Rosedale addresses for a final vote. If approved, the City intends to implement the plan by Fall 2008. Read more.
