Valley Metro Counts Down to Light Rail Extension

As Passenger Transport went to press, Valley Metro in Phoenix was preparing for the March 19 opening of the Northwest Light Rail Extension with a community fair at the new terminus, 19th Avenue/Dunlap, and the ceremonial arrival of the first train. In advance of opening day, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton took part in the first ride and media tour. “This is a significant day for Phoenix,” Stanton said in a statement. “The opening of the Northwest Light Rail Extension will ease travel to school, work and entertainment. With the additional three miles of track, riders have access to a 26-mile system making connections from Dunlap Avenue to downtown Phoenix, Tempe and into the heart of Mesa.”
