6 East 12th and 323 Anderson The proposed changes would link Route 6 East 12th and 323 Anderson. This would improve trip directness, reduce transfers, and customers would be able to access downtown, HEB and Walmart without transferring. Route 323 frequency would be improved during midday on weekdays and throughout the weekend. It would no longer serve the Craigwood neighborhood. Route 6 schedule would be slightly adjusted, and it would no longer stop along Eleanor, Hudson or Techni Center.

383 Research The proposed changes for this route involve shifting from Mopac to Braker and Burnet. This would eliminate the Gateway area stops but would add 20 new stops along Braker and Burnet. The new routing would improve connections to Route 3 Burnet/Manchaca, Route 240 Rutland, and Route 392 Braker, which would reduce transfers and customer waiting time. Due to Northwest Austin community demand for continued access to the Gateway shopping center, the revised proposal for Route 383 now includes additional bus stops at Capital of Texas and Stonelake.

171 Oak Hill Flyer Proposed changes include decreasing the number of neighborhood trips along Westcreek and through Windmill Run area due to low ridership. Minor schedule adjustments are also proposed in response to customer feedback. Additional trips at 8:20 a.m. and 3:40 p.m. would be added to reduce overcrowding during peak hours. Some early morning trips (6:20 and 6:40 a.m.) and evening trips (5:20, 5:40 and 6:20 p.m.) would be consolidated due to low ridership. In response to Southwest Austin community feedback, Route 171 proposed changes would only eliminate one neighborhood trip at 4:20 p.m., in comparison to three trips in original proposal.
