Tempe

Tempe Streetcar is the first modern streetcar line in the Valley. It will serve one of the highest transit ridership centers in the region and connect riders to neighborhoods, major business centers, and regional events and destinations.

 

Rail welding is underway on the Tempe Streetcar project, in preparation of track installation. The 80-foot rail "sticks" are being welded together into 400-foot "strings." Final design plans are expected to be complete in 2018.

 

 

Tempe is already one of the highest public transit ridership centers in the region and Tempe Streetcar will add another efficient transportation option. 

The project received a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in October 2015, which indicates that the project will have no significant environmental effect on the neighboring communities. The FONSI comes following the project’s Environmental Assessment (EA), which evaluates the potential impacts to the neighboring environment, including noise and vibration, traffic and parking, and historical and archaeological resources.
