AUSTIN, TX — October 24, 2014 —  Business leaders, top city officials, and leading nonprofits will gather in downtown Austin on Friday evening to celebrate the success of Austin’s Mobility Week and the 20/20 Mobility Solutions Initiative.

Mobility Week, which concludes on Friday, is a week long campaign to promote alternative transportation options such as public transit, biking, carpooling, flex-time, telework, and more, as solutions to Austin’s growing traffic problems. Austin’s top employers, including Freescale Semiconductor, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), BazaarVoice, University Federal Credit Union, Austin Community College, Parkway Properties, and others, have pledged support to the ongoing 20/20 Mobility Solutions Initiative, a City of Austin and Capital Metro sponsored effort to help local companies develop mobility programs to reduce their employees’ peak hour commutes by 20% by 2020.

“As a founding partner of the 20/20 initiative, we’re excited to be working together with our partners to ease traffic congestion and reduce commuting times for people in Central Texas,” said Linda Watson, CEO of Capital Metro.”
