Phoenix Launches Webpage for Bus Rapid Transit Program https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/1001Public Transit2/27/2020 6:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1001/Newsroom_publictransit_020.jpgPhoenix Launches Webpage for Bus Rapid Transit Program <div class="ExternalClassFC7D7FB163CD403C9D26D3F08FF8CA92"><html> <p>​The Phoenix Public Transit Department invites you to check out the new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) page at <a href="/publictransit/brt" target="_blank">Phoenix.gov/BRT </a>and provide input about the new transit service coming to Phoenix. The page provides information about the Phoenix BRT program including what BRT is, where it could potentially go and what amenities might be included. </p> <p>In 2015, Phoenix voters approved Proposition 104, creating the 35-year street and transit improvement plan known as <a href="https://www.t2050.org/" target="_blank">Transportation 2050 (T2050). </a>BRT is a key component of T2050 and will expand our city's transit service to give passengers more trip options.</p> <p>The difference between BRT and other services is that BRT can move more people while operating throughout the day on major roads. BRT advantages include speed, reliability and convenience, allowing riders to quickly travel throughout the city. Some of the elements found in BRT systems include custom buses, mobile payments, dedicated lanes, advanced technology and level platforms, making it easy for all customers to board.   </p> <p>As a new transit option for Phoenix, BRT will be developed based on where current and future transit ridership shows the most need and with plenty of community input. That's why we need your feedback. </p> <p>The new BRT page will be updated with community meeting locations and details about ways you can participate in the program's development. Are you part of an organization that would like the BRT team to present at your next meeting? Connect with us and start learning about BRT today.</p> <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.
