Mobility Study Goal

The goal of the T2050 Mobility Studies is to improve safety, connectivity, and accessibility for all people -- regardless of their age or ability level -- who walk, ride a bicycle, or use transit to get to their important destinations.



​Mobility Area Description

The south half of the Capitol North Neighborhoods Mobility Area almost exclusively is occupied by Arizona state government offices, including the capitol complex, and is a gateway neighborhood in​to downtown Phoenix. Grand Avenue is in the northeast corner of the Area which, over the past decade, has become a thriving arts and food district. Capitol Elementary is the only school present. There are two parks -- University Park and Woodland Parkway -- with Hu-O-Te Park lying just outside the Area. Central Arizona Shelter Services is located in the southeast corner of the Area and provides services to people in need, including housing facilities for the homeless.
