For details and to request reasonable accommodation, visit <a href="/publictransit/brt" target="_blank">Phoenix.gov/brt​</a>. The BRT page houses a host of information including video content and a survey that can be filled out at any time.</p> <p>Each meeting, one in English and the other in Spanish, will be hosted by the city of Phoenix and will offer the same materials and information.

T2050 is overseen by the Citizens Transportation Commission and includes improved frequency on local bus service, new light rail service and stations, and major street improvement projects. Funding for T2050 comes from a 7/10ths of a cent city sales tax that started Jan. 1, 2016. Over the life of the plan, the funds are estimated to generate about $16.7 billion, or more than half of the plan's overall cost. There will be an additional $14.8 billion in federal and county funds, passenger fares and other sources. </p> <p>For more information, visit the <a href="https://www.t2050.org/" target="_blank">T2050 site </a>or follow <a href="https://twitter.com/PhoenixMetroBus" target="_blank">Phoenix Public Transit</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/StreetsPHX" target="_blank">Phoenix Street Transportation</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/valleymetro" target="_blank">Valley Metro​</a> on Twitter.<br></p> <div> <br> </div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/publictransitNews
