Phoenix’s Transportation 2050 initiative involves tripling the city’s light rail system with 42 miles of new extensions, enhancing overall mobility across the “Valley of the Sun.”
Valley Metro’s 5.5-mile South Central Light Rail Extension will connect riders to South Phoenix, university campuses, and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. A 3.2-mile Northwest Phase II extension will continue light rail service to a new I-17 park-and-ride transit center.
Both system expansions include construction of new operations and maintenance centers.
