Case Study: The Vote for Phoenix Light Rail
Thursday, August 29, 2019
5:00 – 6:00 PM EST
Phoenix voters will decide August 27 whether or not to proceed with development of its light rail system or divert voter-approved funding to roads.
After voters approved a sales tax increase in 2015 to fund a comprehensive 35 year transportation plan, the city’s light rail expansion has been under attack by billionaire-funded anti-transit front groups who have placed their own question on the ballot.
To help other communities learn from Phoenix, APTA’s Center for Transportation (CFTE) is hosting this live webinar to hear from Phoenix mayor Kate Gallego, campaign director Tony Cani and others share their experiences and answer questions.
