The Phoenix Public Transit Department is starting initial design on the City’s first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor along 35th Avenue and Van Buren Street. To continue engaging the community in the BRT program, the city has launched a survey and the new Meet Phoenix BRT blog site meetphoenix​brt.com.

The blog site hosts a series of blogs, infographics, maps, articles and the latest BRT program information.

Check out the site and then take the BRT survey today to provide your input.

Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PHX-BRT

Websites: phoenix.gov/brt​meetphoenixbrt.com ​

Community input will help guide the development of BRT along this corridor.

Feedback will be accepted now through Friday, Oct. 21, 2022.

As a new transit option for Phoenix, BRT will transform and improve transit speed, reliability and overall rider experience. The next steps for the BRT Program are to

  • refine the program schedule
  • identify funding options and
  • develop 15 percent design plans for the 35th Avenue and Van Buren Street corridor.

Together, we can create a successful BRT system that meets the needs of the Phoenix community.

About Transportation 2050: In Aug. 2015, Phoenix voters approved Transportation 2050 (T2050), a 35-year citywide transportation plan. T2050 is overseen by the Citizens Transportation Commission and includes improved frequency on local bus service, new light rail service and stations and major street improvement projects. Funding for T2050 comes from a 7/10ths of a cent city sales tax that started Jan. 1, 2016. Over the life of the plan, the funds are estimated to generate about $16.7 billion, or more than half of the plan’s overall cost. There will be an additional $14.8 billion in federal and county funds, passenger fares and other sources. For more information, visit the T2050 page or follow Phoenix Public TransitPhoenix Street Transportation and Valley Metro  on Twitter.​​​
