Phoenix Celebrates Five Years of Transportation 2050 Accomplishmentshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/1873Public Transit4/26/2021 5:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1873/Public_Transit_Newsroom_40.jpgPhoenix Celebrates Five Years of Transportation 2050 Accomplishments<div class="ExternalClassA1F368A7D1F245E7933AC4687343B9E6"><html> <p></p> <p>​​S​treet improvements, new bus shelters, extended bus service hours, a new light rail station and more milestones were made possible in the last five years thanks to forward-thinking Phoenicians who voted for Proposition 104 (<a target="_blank" href="/T2050">Transportation 2050​</a>) in August 2015. </p> <p>A seven-tenths (7/10) of a cent sales tax went into effect in January 2016, funding the Transportation 2050 (T2050) program. T2050 is a 35-year multimodal transportation plan to dramatically expand investment in bus service, light rail construction and operation, and overall mobility and street improvements across Phoenix. </p> <p>To celebrate these accomplishments, the city has planned a <a target="_blank" href="/T2050/FiveYears">socially distant scavenger hunt ​</a>that can be completed virtually or in person. The city has also released two videos celebrating T2050 achievements.<br></p> <p> “This year marks five years of progress under Phoenix’s T2050 plan, and we have a lot to celebrate,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Phoenix is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country and it is critical that we have a multimodal transit system that meets the needs of our residents and helps them thrive. While 2020 was a different year than we expected, the city forged ahead to meet more goals than ever before. We will continue to do so, to ensure robust, inclusive transportation options become a reality in Phoenix.” </p> <p>Mayor Gallego adds that T2050 also helped position Phoenix for the growth and economic prosperity the city has experienced over the last five years.</p> <p> “Major employers, site selectors and investors look at factors like transportation and infrastructure when choosing where to locate,” Mayor Gallego said. “We have a long-range vision for mobility and transportation that is supported by our voters and that’s why the Phoenix economy is rebounding faster than other cities.”</p> <p> <strong>Public Participation and Multimedia Content </strong> </p> <p>• Participate in the T2050 scavenger hunt to experience progress made to date. The scavenger hunt can be completed at home or in person at various sites that were made possible through T2050 funding. Visit<a target="_blank" href="http://www.phoenix.gov/T2050/FiveYears"> phoenix.gov/T2050/FiveYears</a> to learn more and complete the T2050 scavenger hunt.

The reports highlight various taxpayer-funded projects showing that the city is on track to meet its goals.

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 from federal and county funds, passenger fares and other sources. <br></p><p>For the latest, follow us on Twitter <a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/PhoenixMetroBus">@PhoenixMetroBus​</a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/StreetsPHX">@StreetsPHX</a> and <a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/valleymetro">@ValleyMetro​.​<br></a><br></p><p><strong>Media Contacts</strong></p><p>Phoenix Public Transit, Brenda Yanez, 602-571-5895<br></p><p>Phoenix Street Transportation, Ashley Patton, 602-292-3704<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/publictransitNewspublic-transitBus, light rail and cars in PhoenixPublic Transit#Transportation2050 #T2050 #Multimodal #PhoenixPublicTransit #PhoenixStreetTransportation #T2050FiveYears @PhoenixMetroBus @StreetsPHX @ValleyMetroTransportation 2050, Phoenix Public Transit, Phoenix Street Transportation, Phoenix Light Rail, Multimodal, T2050 Five Years, Prop 104 Achievements, Valley Metro RailBrenda Yanez602-571-5895602-261-8254brenda.yanez@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/28/Brenda_Yanez.jpgAshley Patton602-292-3704ashley.patton@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/92/Ashley_Patton.jpgPhoenixMetroBus

With the dedicated efforts of over 1,300 employees, Phoenix Water treats and distributes tap water to 1.7 million customers daily and manages the city's sewer system. The sewer system handles wastewater treatment operations for 2.9 million residents in five valley cities. Infrastructure includes eight water and wastewater treatment plants, nearly 300 pumps, well, lift and pressure stations, over 7,000 miles of water main, 55,000 fire hydrants and 100,00 manholes and cleanouts. Phoenix's water and sewer rates are among the lowest of comparable-sized cities nationwide. Our tap water supplies are in excellent shape due to decades of planning and multiple water sources. The city reuses nearly all of its wastewater on non-edible crops, wetlands and energy production.<br></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Media Contact: <br></div> <div>Athena Sanchez</div><div>Public Information Officer, Phoenix Water<br>Cell: 602-621-0507</div><div><span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:107%;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-image:initial;background-position:initial;background-size:initial;background-repeat:initial;background-attachment:initial;background-origin:initial;background-clip:initial;">Email</span><span style="box-sizing:border-box;">:</span><a href="mailto:%20athena.sanchez@phoenix.gov​​%20" target="_blank"><span style="box-sizing:border-box;"> </span><span style="font-size:10.0pt;line-height:107%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;"><strong>athena.sanchez@phoenix.gov</strong><span style="background-image:initial;background-position:initial;background-size:initial;background-repeat:initial;background-attachment:initial;background-origin:initial;background-clip:initial;">​</span></span><strong> </strong></a> <br></div> <p>​ <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/waterservicesNews
