Phoenix Public Transit Launches Neighborhood Transit Studyhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/2478Public Transit9/14/2022 6:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2478/Public_Transit_Newsroom_42.jpgPhoenix Public Transit Launches Neighborhood Transit Study<div class="ExternalClass85B70FC2D86548F7A2EA888313134240"><html> <p></p> <p>As part of the <a target="_blank" href="/t2050">Transportation 2050</a> program, the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department is launching a Neighborhood Transit Study (NTS) to get feedback from the community on existing neighborhood circulator routes such as the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.valleymetro.org/maps-schedules/dash">DASH</a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.valleymetro.org/maps-schedules/mary">MARY</a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.valleymetro.org/maps-schedules/smrt">SMART</a> and <a target="_blank" href="https://www.valleymetro.org/maps-schedules/alex">ALEX</a>. The first phase of the study will focus on the downtown Phoenix circulator known as the Downtown Area Shuttle (DASH). ​<br></p> <p>The new web page on <a target="_blank" href="/publictransit/neighborhoodtransit">phoenix.gov/neighborhoodtransit</a> hosts plenty of information about what neighborhood transit is, how it is used and what the goals of the DASH study are. The web content also includes an interactive <a target="_blank" href="https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/f6dc85e6e2294a0fb84dde9be8e983eb/">Story Map</a> to view the study area and submit public comments. <br></p> <p>As part of the study, Phoenix Public Transit is seeking community input; the public and riders are encouraged to take a brief <a target="_blank" href="http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MCDJ9SY">10-question survey</a> to provide feedback about current and future neighborhood transit conditions in the downtown DASH Phoenix area. The survey is open through Sept. 30, 2022. <br></p> <p>In addition, Phoenix Public Transit will hold a virtual public engagement meeting on Sept. 28, 2022 at 6 p.m. to present additional details about the study and gather community feedback. The survey is available online for those who are unable to attend the virtual event, but still want to provide feedback. ​<br></p> <p>Website: <a target="_blank" href="/publictransit/neighborhoodtransit">phoenix.gov/neighborhoodtransit</a></p> <p>Survey: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MCDJ9SY">www.surveymonkey.com/r/MCDJ9SY</a> </p> <p><a target="_blank" href="https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/f6dc85e6e2294a0fb84dde9be8e983eb/">Story Map</a></p> <p><a target="_blank" href="https://coptransit.webex.com/coptransit/onstage/g.php?MTID=e6e4b0fb972bba0df0dc74164c2e2e267">Virtual meeting</a><br></p> <p>“Phoenix voters approved Transportation 2050 in 2015 and already we’ve accomplished much including adding new bus shelters, added bus service and completing bus technology upgrades,” says Phoenix Public Transit Director Jesús Sapien. “It’s our goal to continue understanding our community’s transit needs and this study will allow us to do that.”<br></p> <p>For more information visit phoenix.gov/neighborhoodtransit.<br></p><p><strong> </strong></p> <div><p><strong>About Transportation 2050</strong>: In Aug. 2015, Phoenix voters approved Transportation 2050 (T2050), a 35-year citywide transportation plan. 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.

The grant is made available through the <a href="https://www.whitehouse.gov/bipartisan-infrastructure-law/#:~:text=The%20Bipartisan%20Infrastructure%20Law%20makes%2cas%20thousands%20of%20smaller%20bridges." target="_blank">Bipartisan Infrastructure Law</a> under the <a href="https://www.transit.dot.gov/notices-funding/low-or-no-emission-and-grants-buses-and-bus-facilities-competitive-programs-fy2022#:~:text=The%20Low-No%20Program%20provides%2cleasing%20of%20required%20supporting%20facilities." target="_blank">Low-No Emission and Buses and Bus Facilities</a> highly-competitive grant programs. The programs’ goal is to support the transition of the nation’s fleet to more energy efficient and cleaner transit vehicles.</p> <p>The funding from the grant will be used to​<br></p> <ul> <li>replace aging buses with battery electric and hydrogen fuel-cell buses,</li> <li>install new infrastructure needed for bus charging/fueling and maintenance, and</li> <li>assist in workforce development by training transit personnel to maintain the new fleet.</li> </ul> <p>Today, Mayor Kate Gallego and members of the city council expressed their support and gratitude for the federal funding, and how this is a win in moving towards implementing a cleaner and greener bus fleet.<br></p> <p></p> <p>“Phoenix is a leader in fighting climate change, and we are on our way to becoming the world's most sustainable desert city. This grant is adding to that success, increasing our ability to purchase clean vehicles and invest in needed infrastructure. A big thank you to Congressmen Greg Stanton and Ruben Gallego for their leadership and partnership in securing these funds,” said Mayor Kate Gallego.</p> <p>“Phoenix is leading the way to an even greener fleet that is not only sustainable, but also equitable for the riders who depend on public transit across greater Phoenix,” states Vice Mayor Laura Pastor.</p> <p>“This grant gives Phoenix the opportunity to become a leader in green public transit, including developing the technology, infrastructure and training to support these advancements,” notes Councilmember Debra Stark, Chair of the Transportation, Infrastructure and Planning Subcommittee.</p> <p>“As the chair of the Mayor’s Electric Vehicle Ad Hoc Committee and a vocal clean transit advocate, we have worked to take advantage of every opportunity to fast-track our mission of transitioning our vehicles to low and zero emission,” said Councilwoman Yassamin Ansari. “This is the best way to tackle harmful air pollution and to ensure we can build a sustainable future for all, especially those who rely on public transit,” she added.</p> <p>“Equipping our fleet with zero- and low-emission buses allows us to continue efforts in providing our riders an efficient and green way to get where they need to go,” says Phoenix Public Transit Director Jesús Sapien. “We know public transit is a critical component of our community, and this grant further amplifies our ability to modernize our public transportation infrastructure.”</p> <p>Currently, Phoenix Public Transit has a fleet of 500 heavy-duty buses that run on alternative fuels including natural gas and biodiesel. This grant provides additional resources to add cleaner energy buses to the existing fleet. The new/greener buses are anticipated to hit the road in 2024.</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.
