WHO SAID IT: Building a Better Phoenix, a political action committee supporting Proposition 105

THE COMMENT: “Light rail is expensive! It costs over $140 million dollars per mile to build and consumes 40% of the Phoenix transportation budget.”

THE FORUM: Building a Better Phoenix’s website.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT: Does the light rail cost over $140 million per mile to build? And does it absorb 40% of the city’s transportation budget?

OUR RATING: Claim 1: “(The light rail) costs over $140 million dollars per mile to build.” Two stars: Somewhat true/somewhat false.
