MAG, in partnership with Valley Metro, is developing short- and long-term strategies to improve accessibility to bus stops for all individuals. In response to public input, the MAG Regional Council has approved the use of $2.5 million of transit funding to improve the accessibility at transit stops in the MAG region. The funding will be utilized towards fulfilling the program goal of “Providing safe and equitable accessibility to the transit system across the region with immediate results and long-term sustainability.”
The ATAN Program is intended to be an interim program that addresses immediate and critical needs for improved accessibility to bus stops. To encourage active and continued engagement of the community, projects will be evaluated on a “rolling-application” cycle, with project awards totaling $500,000 every six months, or as needed. Attached please find the approved program requirements.
