Phoenix Public Transit Receives Grant to Study New West Valley Transit Modehttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/2380Public Transit6/9/2022 8:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2380/Public_Transit_Newsroom_39.jpgPhoenix Public Transit Receives Grant to Study New West Valley Transit Mode<div class="ExternalClassD643DA18650A449C91224A490E56B135"><html> <p>The Federal Transit Administration announced the awards for the<a href="https://www.transit.dot.gov/funding/route-planning-restoration-program" target="_blank"> American Rescue Plan Route Planning Restoration Program grants</a> in June, and Phoenix Public Transit was awarded a grant total of $514,045. This funding will be used to conduct a west Phoenix High Capacity Transit (HCT) study.  The study will provide a recommendation for transit modes that specifically provide a higher level of rider capacity and efficiency. <br></p> <p>Today, Mayor Kate Gallego and members of the city council expressed their support for this grant to examine transit in that area. <br></p> <p>“Improving access, ease, equity, and efficiency of transit for the people of Phoenix is a priority for me, and this grant will better inform our efforts under <a href="/t2050" target="_blank">Transportation 2050 (T2050)</a>, a voter-approved local plan for bus service, light rail construction and street improvements,” says Mayor Kate Gallego. “It would combine with Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act grant opportunities and should escalate large and small T2050 transportation projects from plan to completion.”<br></p> <p>“This study will help pave the way for a greatly improved transit system in west Phoenix that connects our residents to better opportunities for education, employment and recreation,” notes Councilmember Betty Guardado.<br></p> <p>“Bringing more efficient and clean public transit to west Phoenix is long overdue. With booming population growth, we need a study that outlines how to best serve diverse communities,” Councilmember Yassamin Ansari adds. <br></p> <p>“Phoenix continues to head in the right direction by finding opportunities for high capacity transit options that support the riders who depend on public transit,” states Vice Mayor Laura Pastor. <br></p> <p>The study area will be focused on west Phoenix encompassing the Maryvale area from Central Avenue (on the east boundary) to 91st Avenue (on the west) and from McDowell Road (south) to Camelback Road (north).<br></p> <p>The goal is to evaluate multiple modes of transit, and how transit improvements will benefit all the surrounding communities. <br></p> <p>Background - In 2019, the Phoenix City Council took action to postpone the west Phoenix light rail extension, from 19th Avenue to 43rd Avenue along Camelback Road, until the end of the <a href="https://t2050.org/" target="_blank">Transportation 2050</a> program.  This grant provides an opportunity to accelerate transit planning in west Phoenix.<br></p> <p> <strong>About the Phoenix Public Transit Department</strong>: The Phoenix Public Transit Department provides Phoenix residents a variety of transit options and is the largest member of the Valley Metro regional transit system. Services range from local and commuter buses to alternative transportation for senior citizens and special needs. The city of Phoenix funds transit, and other transportation improvements, through <a href="/t2050" target="_blank">Transportation 2050 (T2050)</a> – a local sales tax approved by Phoenix voters in 2015 – as well as county and federal funds. T2050 allows for enhanced bus service, transit-related technology improvements and fare media upgrades under the leadership of the Citizens Transportation Commission.
