Connect via light rail, at no additional cost to you! Valley Metro, the Phoenix Convention Center, Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee and Downtown Phoenix Inc., with the support of several downtown Phoenix sponsors, have partnered to provide sponsored fares to those attending the Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at the Phoenix Convention Center and Hance Park. ​<br></p><p><span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>“This will be the most sustainable and family-friendly Super Bowl experience yet, thanks in great part to this program,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This program leverages our investment in public transit and our commitment to keeping our city connected and accessible to our diverse community.”​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br></p> <p>To take advantage, download the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.azsuperbowl.com/onepass/">NFL OnePass app</a> and QR code, located within the Rewards section of the app, which will serve as valid light rail fare for service to/from the events. The OnePass app must be downloaded with the QR code available to present to a fare inspector upon request. The QR code is valid for one adult or family traveling together to the following events:<br></p> <ul dir="" class="" style=""> <li>Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.nfl.com/super-bowl/event-info/super-bowl-experience/pcc">Phoenix Convention Center</a>, Feb. 4 – 5 and 9 – 11<br></li> <li>Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at <a target="_blank" href="https://www.azsuperbowl.com/hancepark/">Hance Park</a>, Feb. 9 – 12, including the first-ever Official Super Bowl Watch Party presented by Verizon</li> </ul> <p>This partnership builds upon an existing program with <a target="_blank" href="https://www.footprintcenter.com/">Footprint Center</a>, in which their event tickets serve as valid light rail fare, including the Super Bowl Opening Night presented by Fast Twitch, Feb. 6, and the Super Bowl Music Fest, Feb. 9 – 11.<br></p> <p>“In 2015, we broke all ridership records on our light rail system, serving 126,000 on Super Bowl Saturday,” said Phoenix Councilmember and Valley Metro RPTA Board Chair Laura Pastor. “This program will make transit that much more convenient and easy-to-use for our many residents and visitors, many of whom are visiting the Valley for the first time.”<br></p> <p>The program would not be possible without the financial support of the downtown Phoenix business community who care about the downtown and fan experience and appreciate the transit connection, specifically: City of Phoenix Community & Economic Development Department, Visit Phoenix, APS, Arizona State University, Lewis Roca, University of Arizona, SmithGroup and Cordia.<br></p> <p>“The Host Committee is proud to work with Valley Metro to focus on the fan experience at Super Bowl events and to make getting in and around downtown Phoenix as easy as possible,” said Jay Parry, President & CEO, Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. “Riding Valley Metro Rail gets locals and visitors close to the action, and is a convenient, no-cost transportation option.”</p> <p>Hop on board light rail from any one of the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.valleymetro.org/getting-there">12 free park-and-rides and five overflow parking lots</a> in Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa.

Phoenix Public Transit Seeks Input on DASH Route Optionshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/2627Public Transit1/13/2023 8:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2627/Public_Transit_Newsroom_47.jpgPhoenix Public Transit Seeks Input on DASH Route Options<div class="ExternalClass423D9C73564646CF852514770F7D3035"><html> <p>​The Phoenix Public Transit Department is rolling into Phase 2 of the Neighborhood Transit Study (NTS) and is seeking community input on the Downtown Area Shuttle Circulator (DASH) proposed routing options.<br></p> <p>Based on public feedback in Phase 1 and a technical assessment, four proposed options were developed for DASH. Each option includes an extension of the current (Government) loop into a proposed <strong>Downtown Loop</strong> to create connectivity to entertainment, shopping, and housing.</p> <p>The proposed options - on a specific part of the route - provide extended weekday hours (until 11 p.m.) and weekend service (Saturday and Sunday). The public is invited to check out <a href="/publictransit/neighborhoodtransit" target="_blank">phoenix.gov/neighborhoodtransit</a> and the corresponding <a href="https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/f6dc85e6e2294a0fb84dde9be8e983eb/" target="_blank">StoryMap</a> before <a href="https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HM6932W?lang=en" target="_blank">filling out the survey</a> on or before Feb. 10, 2023. </p> <p>The Neighborhood Transit Study is an important component of the <a href="/t2050" target="_blank">Transportation 2050</a> program to continue expanding and improving Phoenix's neighborhood circulator routes.</p> <p>The DASH is one of four (free) neighborhood circulators, and one of the busiest. Many people depend on the service to get where they need to go.</p><p>“We’re always looking at how we can improve our services,” says Public Transit Director Jesús Sapien “These proposed changes show we are listening to our community saying they need the service into the weekend as well as having it connect to light rail.”</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.
