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.

This Mobility Area is located within the Sunnyslope community of Phoenix, at the base of North Mountain, North Mountain Park, and "S" Mountain. Its boundaries are Mountain View Road (north), Northern Avenue (south), 14th Street (east), and 7th Avenue (west).
