Cellular Mass Transit
Cellular Mass Transit (CMT) is a major step in Transit Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness, locally developed over more than 15 years and based on several of the most successful transit approaches implemented throughout the world.
Cellular Mass Transit (CMT) utilizes the existing bus system better, in a customer demand driven approach rather than a scheduled route system, combining buses with vans and taxis to serve 100% of the community, 10 minute maximum wait times, twice as fast trip times, and can dramatically increase ridership, causing the taxpayer subsidy to be much less. It can be implemented for a fraction of the capital and operating costs that taxpayers will pay for Austin’s Urban Rail/Light Rail and Cap Metro’s current system approach. CMT deserves serious consideration as a replacement for major portions of Austin’s/Cap Metro’s public transit system.
