Tempe Gets $50M From Feds For 3 Miles Of Streetcar

7 views

The city of Tempe, Ariz. has received $50 million in taxpayer funds from the federal government for the construction of a 3-mile streetcar system.

Last year, former President Barack Obama designated $75 million for the streetcar system.

According to KTAR- TV, the funds from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s capital investment program was part of the appropriations bill signed by President Donald Trump on Friday.

Construction should begin next month.

“Streetcar is an important addition to developing a comprehensive transit network in this region. It supports the existing transit system and community with its ability to attract new riders, increase mobility, strengthen existing neighborhoods and create sustainable development,” Tempe’s Valley Metro website says.

I’m sure the federal taxpayers from every other state not named Arizona are convinced the streetcars' ability to "strengthen existing neighborhoods" in Tempe, made it worth millions of their tax dollars.

Or maybe, they just want to be taken for a ride.
