Phoenix Public Transit Launches Neighborhood Transit Study
As part of the Transportation 2050 program, the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department is launching a Neighborhood Transit Study (NTS) to get feedback from the community on existing neighborhood circulator routes such as the DASH, MARY, SMART and ALEX. The first phase of the study will focus on the downtown Phoenix circulator known as the Downtown Area Shuttle (DASH).
The new web page on phoenix.gov/neighborhoodtransit hosts information about what neighborhood transit is, how it is used and what the goals of the DASH study are. The web content also includes an interactive Story Map to view the study area and submit public comments.
As part of the study, Phoenix Public Transit is seeking community input; the public and riders are encouraged to take a brief 10-question survey to provide feedback about current and future neighborhood transit conditions in the downtown DASH Phoenix area. The survey is open through Sept. 30, 2022.
In addition, Phoenix Public Transit will hold a virtual public engagement meeting on Sept. 28, 2022 at 6 p.m. to present additional details about the study and gather community feedback. The survey is available online for those who are unable to attend the virtual event, but still want to provide feedback.

“Phoenix voters approved Transportation 2050 in 2015 and already we’ve accomplished much including adding new bus shelters, added bus service and completing bus technology upgrades,” says Phoenix Public Transit Director Jesús Sapien. “It’s our goal to continue understanding our community’s transit needs and this study will allow us to do that.”
