Where We’ve Been…

Take a closer look at the progress of our program since 2019!

Where We've Been

Where it Began

In 2019, at the direction of Phoenix’s Citizen Transportation Commission and City Council, the project team reevaluated the BRT corridors in the T2050 plan. Following the technical analysis, the team completed nearly 11 months of community outreach to solicit input on six potential BRT corridors. Based on community input and the results of the technical analysis, the 35th Avenue/Van Buren Street corridor has been approved by City Council to move forward into the next phase of development and analysis: detailed corridor planning.
