More community events on the schedule as ADOT continues Passenger Rail Corridor Study

If you read this blog post last month, you already know that ADOT is making a call to the public for input on the Passenger Rail Corridor Study...

You’re also aware that this study’s purpose is to examine the feasibility of a passenger rail line between Phoenix and Tucson.

But, maybe you don’t know that since we last blogged about the study, ADOT has been out to several community events talking with thousands of people (see photos above). These events have included Coolidge Days, Tucson Meet Yourself, CityScape downtown Phoenix lunch hour, Maricopa Stagecoach Days, Gilbert’s Fall Festival and the Arizona State Fair!

The community events, along with ADOT’s media and social media outreach, have yielded the following:
  • Over 1,300 online surveys completed 
  • 348 comment forms received 
  • More than 100 comments received via email or mail 

What’s next?
Comments are being accepted through Dec. 15 and there are still several community events that ADOT will be participating in through the rest of this year.

You can also go online to get all the information you need on the study – while you’re there, you can complete a quick online questionnaire about the potential corridor alignments.
