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.

In Fiscal Year 2020, total ridership for the regional bus and 28-mile light rail system was 53 million passengers. Five high capacity transit extensions are in planning or under construction that will create a 50-mile system by 2030. Valley Metro also offers  alternative transportation programs including paratransit services for seniors and people with disabilities, commuter vanpools, online carpool matching, bus trip mapping, bicycle safety and telework assistance. Two Boards of Directors from 18 local cities and towns and the county set the policy direction for the agency with the intent of advancing the regional public transit system in Maricopa County.

Phoenix Public Transit Secures Millions in Grant for New Buseshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/1451Public Transit8/12/2020 5:25:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1451/Public_Transit_Newsroom_026.jpgPhoenix Public Transit Secures Millions in Grant for New Buses<div class="ExternalClassEA59019CD4A446838A70F6026C16E063"><html> <p>U. S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao announced this week that the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is awarding the Phoenix Public Transit Department over $6.9 million in funding for new buses.  <br></p> <p>This important news means there will be ad​​​​ditional funding to improve the reliability of Phoenix’s existing bus system. <br></p> <p>“This grant is critical for the funding of new buses,” says Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continued to provide essential public transit services to the community. This grant will help enhance the efficiency and reliability of our bus fleet while providing access to jobs, schools and important health services our residents need.”<br></p> <p>The Public Transit team worked hard to meet all the criteria needed for this funding opportunity. The application process was highly competitive (the FTA received 282 applications) as demand for grants for buses and bus facilities far exceeded available funds. <br></p> <p>“Improving transportation infrastructure is vital to our residents who rely on our transit system, and it is key to building and strengthening an economy.  I appreciate U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao’s commitment to provide grants that will improve the safety and reliability of bus service at this critical time,” says Councilwoman Thelda Williams, who chairs the City Council’s Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee.  <br></p> <p>The voter-approved Phoenix Transportation 2050 plan, or T2050, identifies the need to continue to purchase new buses to modernize and expand the city's local bus fleet. Many riders depend on the bus system to get where they need to go and upgraded buses provide customers with even more reliable service. Phoenix has been actively purchasing new buses since 2014, replacing an average of 40 a year.<br></p> <p> <strong>About the Phoenix Public Transit Department</strong>: </p> <p> 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.
