Two public meetings are planned for the METRO I-10 West high capacity transit study. At these meetings, METRO will present the study’s initial results and recommendations on the possible alignment routes, station locations, and type of transit mode (light rail or bus rapid transit) for this future extension. To date, METRO has identified the median of the I-10 West as the preferred transit alignment route between 83rd Avenue and the I-17 freeway. The alignment connecting from the I-17 to the downtown Phoenix light rail line including various station locations and type of transit mode are still under evaluation. You are encouraged to attend these meetings and provide input.

The I-10 West Community Working Groups (CWG) were established to ensure pubic participation in the process which will help guide the direction of the alignment, transit technology, and station locations for the study area. The Downtown CWG represents the study area east of the I-17. The Mainline CWG represents the study area west of the I-17. Both CWGs meet once a month (see meeting details below). Stakeholders within the study area are encouraged to participate.
