"As previously stated, the Central Corridor Project Management team agrees that a future urban rail line on the Guadalupe-Lamar corridor is worth pursuing. That is why planning for how the current recommendation would connect to that alignment is already ongoing, with additional studying planned in the near future."
This is a lie. As we have stated before, Project Connect's plan is to put dedicated bus lanes on North Lamar/Guadalupe IF voters approve the 1 billion dollar transportation plan. These dedicated bus lanes would make it prohibitively expensive to put any future rail down North Lamar/Guadalupe.
Remember, no matter how many times Project Connect and the Mayor try to bury the facts, the truth remains: A vote for East Austin Rail is a vote for dedicated bus lanes on North Lamar/Guadalupe.
