In June 2022, Valley Metro launched the Quality of Life Study website that shares how public transit in metro Phoenix intersects with daily life and the value that it brings to local communities and the region.
The information is centered around four pillars:
- Responding to the Valley’s needs
- Improving communities through transit
- Prioritizing riders
- Benefiting the Valley
The anticipated results are an increased understanding of how transit investments are critical to the community. It also demonstrates how continued investment is crucial to the future of Maricopa County, one of the fastest growing regions in the country.
The site’s launch is particularly timely in 2022 as it relates to the key, regional transportation funding renewal that may go before the voters this fall.
The data is compiled from various sources including local transit performance data, as well as regional, state and federal agencies.
