Transportation 2050 Progress Report

On Aug. 25, 2015, Phoenix voters passed Proposition 104, approving a sales tax increase for transportation improvements from 0.4 percent to 0.7 percent for 35 years. The proposition, known as Transportation 2050 (T2050), became effective Jan. 1, 2016. A 15-member Citizens Transportation Commission (CTC) was appointed by the mayor and City Council to oversee the T2050 program, ensure accountability in the expenditures of funds and provide oversight during implementation.

In addition to the CTC’s role in shaping the plan, the City Council’s Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee provides policy guidance on streets and transit issues before items are presented to the full council for approval.

The T2050 Progress Report identifies progress of the first 18 months of T2050 and highlights planned improvements for the next five years. Click here to view the report.
