Arizona seeks comments on passenger rail proposals

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Department of Transportation is looking for public comment on the feasibility of developing a passenger rail to link Phoenix and Tucson.

The department says Saturday is the last day to comment on the feasibility study.

The department has been gathering comments during community events in Maricopa, Pinal and Pima counties. In all, it has received nearly 2,800 surveys from around Arizona.

Transportation officials are considering six rail alternatives and one express bus route. The rail alternatives focus on providing both express service that directly connects Phoenix and Tucson and a regional commuter service that would allow passengers to board the train at stations in different communities along the selected alignment.

The department plans to narrow the list to two or three alternatives in the spring of 2013.
