Project Connect leaders are preparing for the commencement of phase 1 construction of the light rail in Austin in 2027, as per officials who spoke to KXAN News on March 25th. According to current projections, trains are anticipated to be operational in Austin by 2033.

This update coincides with the ongoing collaboration between the Austin Transit Partnership and the Federal Transit Administration in navigating the grant process. Officials expect that up to 50% of the costs for the initial phase of the light rail will be covered by federal funding.

The FTA's federal grant process typically spans approximately two years and aims to secure national funding for the construction of the light rail. Officials have affirmed that phase 1, encompassing a 9.8-mile track stretching from 38th Street to Oltorf Street in the south and Yellow Jacket Lane in the southeast, remains on schedule. The estimated cost for this phase is approximately $4.8 billion in current-year dollars.
