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 meetphoenixbrt.com.
The blog site hosts a series of blogs, infographics, maps, articles and the latest BRT program information.
The city is asking that residents review the site and then take the BRT survey to provide input. 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.
