One of Rep. Greg Stanton’s long-time priorities—the South Central Light Rail in Phoenix—received a major federal investment today. The Federal Transit Administration announced it will allocate $100 million in FY2019 Capital Investment Grant Funding to Valley Metro for the South Central extension.
“This federal investment will be critical to light rail’s future in South Phoenix,” said Stanton. “We’ve long fought for this project, which is going to connect the community to new economic opportunities—connect them to jobs, education, health care, social services and more. It’s a great day for South Central Phoenix.”
Stanton is a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which oversees federal transit programs including the Capital Investment Grant.
