Just as an update to my dream system, I have rerouted my Orange Line to connect to the Blue Line at Westgate, as well as to better serve Downtown Peoria. Come see the complete system here:

Northwest Extension opens in Phoenix

Quote:



The first phase of Valley Metro’s Northwest Extension opened on March 19 with a day of free travel across the Phoenix light rail network.
The 5·2 km extension runs north along 19th Avenue from Montebello Avenue to Dunlap Avenue, with intermediate stops at Glendale Avenue and Northern Avenue. Work on the $327m project began in January 2013 and construction was carried out by a joint venture of Sundt and Stacy & Witbeck. Ridership on the extension is expected to be 5 000 passengers/day.
A second phase of the Northwest Extension would take the line to Metrocenter Mall by 2026. The local authorities envisage six further extensions of the light rail network, which would bring it to 106 route-km by 2034.

Going back to the subject of my dream light rail system, note that I did consider a third yard for the Pink and Purple Lines along Power Road in either Gilbert or east Mesa, however, I decided against it due to how far the west end of the Purple Line would be from the yard, thus resulting in long non-revenue deadheads, which would be a nightmare for rail operators whose last trip of the day was a westbound Purple Line trip. Since the Pink and Purple Lines would be interlined in my system, they have to be based at the same yard, thus I decided for them to be based at the Tempe yard along with the Green, Orange, and Brown Lines due to being a fairly central location for both the Pink and Purple Lines.

Again, with a system as extensive as my dream system, I don't think the existing yard in Phoenix alone can handle the entire system, so I added a yard in Tempe for the Green, Pink, Purple, Brown, and Orange Lines.

For my dream light rail system, I am considering adding another line to my system between ASU West and Paradise Valley Mall. The line would be interlined with the Silver Line at Paradise Valley Mall. Colors that I am considering for the line are either Aqua or Turquoise. Any other suggestions?

Will Phoenix's first light-rail extension revitalize 19th Avenue?

Phoenix’s first light-rail extension is anchoring a new vision for the city's north-central neighborhoods along 19th Avenue, where community leaders want to improve safety and revitalize an area they're calling "19 North."[...]

Even if they don't, the area has a lot of service and lower-paid jobs people from elsewhere need to commute to!

The 72 is one of the busiest bus routes operated by the First Transit-RPTA operation in the East Valley. As for what percentage of riders are Scottsdale residents is unknown, but the ridership speaks for itself. A light rail line along Scottsdale/Rural Road would alleviate overcrowding on the 72.

According to this article:
http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/n...ar-system.html

Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell wants to extend the Tempe Streetcar (the Green Line in my dream system) to Sloan Park in Mesa. Mesa Mayor John Giles is open to the idea, however, funding is currently unavailable for such an extension.

In spring 2017, construction will begin on an infill light-rail station at 50th Street & Washington. This is between 44th/Washington (airport) and Priest Drive/Washington (Tempe).
