WHEELS in MOTION
A community celebration and grand opening of the Crestview/Highland Urban Trail
It's about connections. To school, to work, to the other side of the neighborhood. Capital Metro and the City of Austin are making your connections easier, safer and more sustainable, with the new Crestview/Highland urban trail that connects transit hubs, businesses and the forthcoming ACC Highland campus, along a one-mile stretch of trail. Join the celebration as we officially open the trail.
