Transportation Primer Cover

These are some of the questions addressed in a transportation primer released by Arizona Forward, the state's oldest environmental nonprofit. Its charge is to promote cooperative efforts to improve the livability, sustainability and economic vitality of Arizona’s cities and towns.

Arizona’s future economic development will be tied closely to its willingness to commit funding and resources to improving and expanding its transportation system. The purpose of the primer is to provide opinion leaders and the general public with the information they need to evaluate this complex topic so they can make more informed transit choices.

Arizona Forward developed the primer to provide unbiased facts, background information and viable alternatives to consider as the state moves forward with transportation planning. Our hope is that it will serve as a catalyst for discussion to help find workable and affordable alternatives to meet our future transportation needs.
