Shared Use Paths

Multimodal solutions are an integral part of our mobility future

The Mobility Authority is committed to keeping Central Texas moving and building a future that protects quality of life for our region. This commitment is why we design, construct, and implement multimodal, pedestrian and cyclist friendly facilities like shared use paths, sidewalks and cross-street connections as part of every project whenever feasible.

Our sustainable, multimodal mobility transportation options are intended to enhance the experience for all who use our facilities, not just vehicle drivers. With more than 70 miles of shared use paths or sidewalks in place or planned, we’re proud to share these facilities across Central Texas.
