High-tech transit is vital to Valley’s growth, future

The Valley is one region especially poised for this opportunity. It has a light-rail system, which has been expanding since its introduction in 2008. But, as one of the fastest-growing states in the country and as a member of the 15 largest metro areas in the U.S., the need for infrastructure that can support quality of life for its citizens and economic growth is paramount.
And, the opportunities are here and ready for action. From its “Reinvent Phoenix” initiative, a planning process for five “urban” districts around the light-rail system, to the proposed citywide bike-share program to lessen traffic congestion and reduce CO2 emissions, Phoenix and the Valley are ready to lead the way.
