Light Rail Extension Outreach

For our transportation system to work for everyone, it needs to connect people to the places they want to go. Light rail connects people to jobs to support their families, schools to get a solid education, doctor's appointments to stay healthy.

Cooperation and collaboration with countless supporters and partners have shaped and given life to the vision of a better-connected region. We're building lines that are sound, built from the ground up.
