  • And we are going to need this capacity, with our continued population boom at the rate of 1 million per decade. By the time the transportation improvements in Prop. 400 are complete, more than 7 million people will live here.
  • All these people are going to need to get around the Valley. What happens, though, is that, as new people move to the outskirts of the Valley, miles traveled increases much faster than population. And the number of new vehicles on the road will also increase faster than the population. METRO light rail is being developed as a regional solution to address our growing transportation challenges.
  • Over the past decade or so, there have been a number of elections to try to address our transportation problems. First was Val Trans. Regional election. Major improvements to transit, including about 100 miles of elevated light rail. Too much, too soon. Went down in flames. In 1996, Tempe was the first to lead the way by successfully passing a transit referendum . In 1998, Mesa passed a Quality of Life tax , which was not a dedicated transit tax. Pays for the arts, aquatic center, etc. Then last March, Phoenix passed Transit 2000 . These elections provided the revenue needed to pay for our project and other transit improvements.

  • So our designers thought outside the box and added vertical shade elements to shield the low morning and afternoon sun in the form of louvers that act like Venetian blinds, as well as vine trellises. Overhead canopies and trees at the stations will provide additional shade.
  • Public art process Community involvement Artist at each station
  • Low flooring to allow for easy access by all users . We have accommodated bicycle users in our vehicle design. 4 hanging bike racks INSIDE each vehicle , as well as locking bike lockers at each Park n’ Ride. Vehicles also have space for wheelchairs , and the wheelchairs do not require tie-downs because the stopping action of light rail is so smooth .
  • 8 PNRs totaling 3,500 spaces The route follows the Valley’s highest traveled corridor –through our urban core, where we need to add people-moving capacity , but where it’s expensive and difficult or impossible to do so using road widening .
  • METRO service will match-up with bus service so you can make connections at the beginning and end of the day. The travel time will be the same…or even better …than what you’d be able to achieve in a car.
  • Agency Update - 9/21/06 Board Meeting Sept. 21, 2006 Thank you: Environmental task force members Larry Morrison Councilmember Les Presmyk Councilmember Linda Abbot Tami Ryall
  • There is nothing NEW to learn! Light rail safety rules are the rules you already know. What we are doing is reminding people to obey the rules they already know … and to pay attention.
  • Projects under construction include: Artisan Village , a 105-unit urban housing and retail project near Roosevelt and Central, scheduled for completion in summer 2005 Monroe Place, 52 loft units near Jefferson and 1 st Avenue Portland Place , 150-200 ownership housing units near 3 rd Avenue and Portland.
