Update from the ValleyMetro website
Voters in Phoenix have defeated an initiative that would have ended all light rail construction, prohibited future rail investment and returned billions in federal dollars previously pledged to expand the regional transit system.
This vote marks the fourth time since 2000 that Phoenix voters have publicly supported light rail through the election process.
The vote means that Valley Metro will continue to build-out the regional rail system, including these Phoenix extensions currently underway:
• South Central Extension/Downtown Hub
• Northwest Extension Phase II
• Capitol/I-10 West Extension
