For State Agencies: Are there resources available to help my agency solve commute issues related to the Capitol Complex construction?
Movability is a local non-profit that assists employers with transportation-related issues. Their staff can help you develop a strategic mobility plan to decrease drive-alone behavior by employees. By decreasing the number of workers who are commuting during rush hour – through options such as transit, telework, carpooling, etc. – agencies can mitigate the effects of the construction and reduce employee stress. In 2018, Texas Facilities Commission and Texas State Preservation Board went through Movability’s program to help provide employees with alternative commute options during construction. There may be some funding assistance from the City of Austin for Movability’s expert assistance to agencies. To learn more, contact Kate Harrington at 737.204.7644.
