The situation has been extreme that triggered the formation of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority to try and curb the situation and come up a with a suitable solution.
At the end of last year i.e. December, the boss of CTRMA called for a meeting with the most significant individuals in the mobility industry of Austin. The venue for the meeting was Sheraton Georgetown Texas conference center. The meeting however that was held in the 5-star conference centers was very different from the other meeting that held before. The Agenda of the meeting was to cover mobility of the whole area of Williamson County.
According to Crunchbase, the meeting was attended both major stakeholders like the External Affairs Directors of Uber Technologies of Texas branch, Leandre Johns, the Executive Director of CTRMA, Mike Heiligenstein and the founder of RideScout firm. What was noted in the meeting was that the officials and the public in Austin did an outstanding job on reducing the traffic jam in the area.
The staff of Austin area boasted of driverless roads and wider roads and all in which have a full, significant impact in reducing traffic jam. However, the experts noted that the area is currently attracting more people to the area. They came to a conclusion that the expansion of roads was not enough and that they should come up with a better solution.
