Complete Streets are streets for everyone. Whether people are traveling by car, bicycle, transit, or as pedestrians, they need safe, comfortable and convenient travel routes.

Street impact fees help fund roadway capacity projects necessitated by new development. The Austin City Council adopted ordinances creating a Street Impact Fee Program on December 10, 2020. The ordinances amend the City code and set fee collection rates and other policies. 

Our department’s Transportation Demand Management Program works to encourage sustainable modes of travel and relieve traffic congestion in Austin and its regional neighbors. Transportation demand management promotes solutions that move trips to off-peak hours or shift drive-alone trips to other forms such as public transit, walking, biking, teleworking, carpooling, and vanpooling.
