Phoenix agency receives regional award

Posted on April 7, 2008

The Phoenix-based Regional Public Transportation Agency (RPTA), operating service under the brand name Valley Metro, received the 2008 Outstanding Transit Organization Award from the Arizona Transit Association.  


In 2007, the Valley Metro Board of Directors took action to regionalize the RPTA by passing a resolution stating that the 14-member agency will become a single regional transit system over time, and will offer the first comprehensive, multi-modal transit system in the region.  


After passage of Proposition 400 in November 2004, agency staff have been working on new projects and services that began implementation in 2006 and will continue through 2026, including commuter express bus, local bus service, 27 miles of light rail extensions, light rail vehicles, and bus and rail facilities.
