On Aug. 25, 2015, Phoenix voters
approved Transportation 2050 and made a strong statement about the importance of expanding investment in Phoenix for bus service, light rail construction and street improvements.
The previous transit plan, known as T2000, was a voter-approved tax that primarily funded transit service in Phoenix. Now broader and more comprehensive, the Transportation 2050 plan places additional emphasis on street needs including; street maintenance, new pavement, bike lanes, sidewalks and ADA accessibility which will all compliment the increase in transit services.
Transportation 2050 plan was developed by a citizen-led committee of transportation experts and community advocates and addresses a wide array of concerns expressed by residents who drive, bike, walk and ride transit service. The 35-year citywide street and transit improvement plan, which
became effective Jan. 1, 2016, will triple the number of light rail miles in Phoenix by adding 42 miles of across the city, provide late night bus and Dial-a-Ride service citywide, and will directly and indirectly benefit every street in Phoenix.
