Transit in Greater Arizona

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Public Transit Programs and Grants Section, located within the Multimodal Planning Division, is responsible for administering several federal grant programs intended to enhance mobility options and meet the transportation needs of the elderly and disabled populations, as well as those of the general population, in the non-urbanized areas of Arizona. The Section is also tasked with developing the first State Transit Plan in 2014. The State Transit Plan will establish a statewide vision for transit, determine priorities for transit development should a state funding source become available in the future, and identify travel corridors that would enhance regional connectivity. This research will create an inventory of existing transit service across Arizona by private-sector for-profit and non-profit providers, and will develop a profile of travel preferences and trends in identified portions of rural Arizona. Trends and preferences may include: mode preferences, use of mobile technology, environmental consciousness, level of support for transit funding, etc. This information will significantly inform the ability of the Public Transit Programs and Grants Section to achieve the objectives of the State Transit Plan.
