In 2013, Valley Metro, in partnership with the cities of Glendale and Phoenix, and the local community, initiated a transit corridor study for the West Phoenix/Central Glendale area to identify high-capacity transit service options to connect downtown Glendale to the existing light rail system. The purpose of the study is to determine a route location and a type of transit (light rail or bus rapid transit) that will best serve the area from 19th Avenue to downtown Glendale.
