Project Connect Game Night

Scholz Garten

Austin, TX

Do you have THE solution to Austin’s transportation problems?

 Project Connect Game Night is a great opportunity to put your transit planning skills to the test!

 This app-based game will help answer the puzzling questions that have stumped Central Texans for generations, questions like, “What type of transit do you think people will ride?”, “Where would you locate future transit service?”, “When do you think these services should run?” and “What kind of high-capacity transit will be the most cost efficient and offer the greatest return?” This fun game will confound players with real-world factors that must be considered when planning a regional transit system.

Think you have what it takes?

Join us on August 24 to play the Project Connect Game at Scholz Garten from 6-8 p.m. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided at this public event.


P.S. Be sure to take transit -- it’s easy! Use Capital Metro’s Trip Planner to ride to the Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd., Austin. This location is served by MetroBus Local routes 7, 10, 20 and 37. Fares: $1.25/Single Ticket or $2.50/ Day Pass. Download the CapMetro App to plan trips and buy passes on-the-go.

Budget Party

Capital Factory

Austin, TX

Join us for the one-year celebration of our budget party app!

In anticipation of city council's final budget readings in September, we are relaunching this app to better educate and understand your budget priorities.  Budget Party is a web application that teaches about Austin's city budget and invites people to remix how departments and services are funded. This is a fun and accessible way to get a glimpse into the choices that must be made when balancing Austin's budget. 

The night will include the budget party app game and prizes. Food and refreshments will be provided!
