Phoenix

Study to evaluate the expansion of light rail service further west.

Glendale City Council voted December 12, 2017 to discontinue participation in the West Phoenix/Central Glendale Transit Corridor Study. Valley Metro respects the decision made by the Glendale City Council and looks forward to continuing to work with city partners in Glendale to evaluate and address the city’s current and future transit needs. Valley Metro will also work with Phoenix to discuss next steps and transit options that best fit the needs and future demand for travel in the west Phoenix area.

 

In 2013, Valley Metro 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. Valley Metro has completed three levels of technical analysis, which included the evaluation of population densities, employment and activity centers, ridership potential, potential right-of-way and traffic impacts, economic development potential and cost. Public input was collected throughout the study process.
