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. </p> <p>For more information, visit the <a href="https://www.t2050.org/" target="_blank">T2050 site </a>or follow <a href="https://twitter.com/PhoenixMetroBus" target="_blank">Phoenix Public Transit</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/StreetsPHX" target="_blank">Phoenix Street Transportation</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/valleymetro" target="_blank">Valley Metro​</a> on Twitter.<br></p> <div> <br> </div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/publictransitNewspublic-transit
Phoenix Public Transit Department to Restore Pre-COVID Bus Serviceshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/1585Public Transit10/23/2020 5:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1585/Public_Transit_Newsroom_031.jpgPhoenix Public Transit Department to Restore Pre-COVID Bus Services<div class="ExternalClassA2CB5587B2BC40A3AF8AFEA2EE1D9C36"><html> <p>​The Phoenix City ​Council approved the partial restoration of public transit services beginning Oct. 26. The following service changes will be implemented:</p><p><strong>Hours</strong></p><p>Morning bus service on Phoenix-operated routes will return to a start time of approximately 4 a.m. on weekdays and 5 a.m. on weekends. </p><p><strong>Added Trips</strong></p><p>RAPID service will begin with the restoration to the I-17 route, with one inbound trip in the morning and one afternoon outbound trip. Public Transit staff will continue monitoring ridership closely to determine if additional trips are needed for additional RAPID routes in the future. </p><p><strong>On-board Adjustments</strong></p><p>Designated seats will now be marked as ‘unavailable’ to facilitate social distancing, rather than a specific limit of riders on each bus.</p><p>These changes will be implemented as part of the regularly scheduled biannual transit service changes on Oct. 26. Phoenix will work with Valley Metro to coordinate these changes.</p><p>Other safety measures and cleaning protocols implemented throughout the pandemic will continue. Face covering are also​​ still required on all public transit services, including bus, light rail, paratransit, Dial-a-Ride, and vanpoools. The Public Transit Department continues working jointly with the riding public to ensure a clean, safe, and comfortable ride.
