6 Potential Bus Rapid Transit Routes Under Consideration in Phoenix
Christina Estes reports on a recently released proposal for six potential bus rapid transit (BRT) routes in Phoenix.
The transit tax approved by voters in 2015, called Proposition 104, included funding for bus rapid transit, according to Estes. That plan also set into motion the Phoenix Transportation 2050 (T2050) plan, which includes plans for bus rapid transit.
The proposed routes have been chosen based on "demographic and socioeconomic data, current transit ridership and forecasted ridership," according to Estes. All six proposed routes have already been mapped [pdf].
Public hearings on the proposed routes will begin this spring.
