What’s With Austin’s Traffic?


If you look at Houston, there are lots of employment centers: there’s downtown, there’s the Galleria area. Dallas is the same way. In Austin, by contrast, we have a core area around downtown—UT, the Capitol—where 18 percent of the jobs are located. That’s the fourth-highest percentage in the country, behind New York, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans.
