Phoenix Transit Service begins initial design of the city’s first bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor along 35th Avenue and Van Buren Street. To continue engaging the community in the BRT program, the city launched a survey and the new Meet Phoenix BRT blog site meetphoenixbrt.com.
The blog site hosts a series of blogs, infographics, maps, articles and the latest information on the BRT program.
Check out the site, then take the BRT survey today at www.surveymonkey.com/r/PHX-BRT to have your say. Community input will help guide the development of BRT along this corridor.
Comments will be accepted until Friday, October 21, 2022.
As a new transit option for Phoenix, BRT will transform and improve speed, reliability and the overall rider experience. The next steps for the BRT program are to
- refine the program schedule
- identify financing options and
- develop 15% design plans for the 35th Avenue and Van Buren Street corridor.
Together, we can create a successful BRT system that meets the needs of the Phoenix community.
About Transportation 2050
In August 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 of local bus service, new light rail services and stations, and major street improvement projects. Funding for T2050 comes from a municipal sales tax of 7/10ths of a cent that began January 1, 2016. Over the life of the plan, the funds are expected to generate approximately $16.7 billion, more than the half of the overall cost of the plan. There will be an additional $14.8 billion in federal and county funds, passenger fares and other sources.
