Valley Metro transit system works to improve safety for light rail riders
Oct. 17, 2017
The Valley Metro transit system, which operates the Phoenix area’s bus and light rail operations, is launching a new, “Respect the Ride” safety and security campaign for the light rail system. It will start with a tougher code of conduct and other measures to bolster safety and security for the Valley’s 26-mile light rail line.
Valley Metro CEO Scott Smith is launching the campaign as he completes his first year on the job and tells us more about it.
According to Smith, incidents of “unacceptable behavior” on the light rail have been increasing over the last few years.
