About the Downtown Transportation Plan Update

The Downtown Transportation Plan Update takes a broad look at the Phoenix Downtown transportation system today and through 2025. Substantial growth, along with public and private sector investments, are influencing the system. This study investigates, develops, and analyzes various transp​ortation scenarios based on strategies identified by Street Transportation Department staff, stakeholders and the general public.

This plan is an update to the Phoenix Comprehensive Downtown Transportation Study which was completed in 2014 through a partnership with the Maricopa Association of Governments. The high-level study developed a new vision for Downtown Phoenix access and mobility to enhance economic opportunities and livability. A strategy of improvements was identified, many of which have either been implemented or are now in progress.
