Phoenix Wants to Triple its Light Rail Mileage
"Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton wants to triple Metro light rail's mileage over the next 30 years. But do to [sic] that, the city would likely need to go back to voters to fund it," reports Caitlin McGlade.
Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters will head a committee "to draft light-rail expansions and street and bus improvements so they can bring it to voters next year." The effort already has a website to solicit feedback about the future of public transportation in Phoenix.
