Phoenix has launched a study to obtain comments and opinions about neighborhood transit circulator routes.
The first phase of the study will focus on the downtown Phoenix circulator DASH or the Downtown Area Shuttle.
A new web page on phoenix.gov/neighborhoodtransit provides 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.
The public and riders are encouraged to take a 10-question survey to provide the city with information about current and future neighborhood transit conditions in the downtown DASH Phoenix area. The survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/MCDJ9SY is open through Friday, Sept. 30.
In addition, Phoenix Public Transit will conduct a virtual public engagement meeting on at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, to present additional details about the study and gather more information from the community.
“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,” Phoenix Public Transit Director Jesús Sapien said in a release.
“It’s our goal to continue understanding our community’s transit needs, and this study will allow us to do that.”
