Northeast


Status

Valley Metro has initiated a feasibility study to evaluate corridor options to connect the existing light rail system to the Paradise Valley Mall area. The two corridor options were identified through the following plans:

- The 2004 Regional Transportation Plan, which identifies a 12-mile corridor option.
- Phoenix Transportation 2050 Plan, which identifies an alternate 8-mile corridor option.

The study will conclude in mid 2018 and will provide the necessary information to begin a more detailed transit study.

Background

The Northeast project will provide enhanced transit service to the Paradise Valley Mall area and is scheduled to open in 2034. The Northeast corridor project is included in the regionally-approved Regional Transportation Plan.
