The Arizona Transit Association (AzTA) recently contracted with WestGroup Research to conduct statewide polling research to measure resident’s perceived priorities for key transportation system components across the State of Arizona. The results of the survey indicated strong support for statewide improvements and expansion of public transportation, including that 38% of respondents ranked implementing a regional bus system as either their 1st or 2nd priority. Expanding or adding a light rail system ranked 1st or 2nd by 37% of those involved in the survey. Only improving major streets and intersections ranked higher than increased bus systems and light rail overall.
