And don't worry if you aren't familiar with the improvements - The Phoenix Public Transit and Street Transportation departments have compiled an <a target="_blank" href="/streetssite/Documents/2019_T2050_Progress_Report_3_ENGLISH.pdf">annual progress report </a>to showcase the various achievements made so far. The highly visual report exemplifies the city's continued commitment to ensuring accountability, transparency and tracking measurable goals in the delivery of T2050 programs and projects. </p> <p> <br>The report also provides detailed financial information on everything related to street and transportation improvements in an easy-to-navigate format. <br><br>Progress highlighted in Public Transit includes increased bus service every 30 minutes on all bus routes, 15-minute frequency on most Phoenix core routes, new bus shelters, a new 50th Street light rail station and added RAPID service throughout Phoenix. <br><br>The T2050 Street Transportation Department progress includes repaving more than 400 miles of city streets, preservation treatments on 1,400 miles of city and neighborhood streets, adding more than 141 miles of new bicycle lanes and 27 miles of new sidewalks and replacing 1,450 street lights and nearly 2,900 illuminated street signs. <br><br>Feedback from our residents and riders is a critical part of the process, so make sure to fill it out this survey before February 28. <br><br>The T2050 complete report is available on the program progress webpage, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.t2050.org/">T2050.org</a>. The <a target="_blank" href="https://www.westgroupresearch.com/Phoenix2050">T2050 online survey is available here</a>.<br><br>About Transportation 2050: 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.
