Too many stops
- I've ridden the light rail a couple of times. Although I'm not dead set against the concept, I think some poor choices prevent it from being a success. The biggest drawback are the number of stops and fact that it at street level; requiring to stop for traffic. Another sore spot are hours of operation. To assist in avoidance of DUI hours should be expanded to more closely mirror bar hours.

Very happy with beginning
- Yes the light rail is not for everyone. But the effects of it on the valley does help everyone. I don't know about you, but reduced traffic, pollution, and congestion is what the valley needs since so many people lives here now. I am biased coming from the Northeast. But I use it 2-4 times a week. I am very happy so far and can't wait till it is extended.

would not use light rail
- I would have to drive to light rail, so whats the point. Who would wait in burning sun to board? I dont think the cost was worth the installation.
needs to be expanded
- I don't live in AZ but rode the rail during a recent visit there. It was wonderful. Now it just needs to be expanded - to Scottsdale, Goodyear/Avondale/Litchfield Park, and Peoria/Sun City. It is definitely an idea whose time has come.

- I am an ASU student who goes to the Downtown Phoenix ASU campus but lives in Tempe. I use the light rail every other day to get back and forth between the two campuses along with nearly all of my friends. No longer do we have to worry about parking, traffic, etc. we just hop on the light rail for the enjoyable 20-25 minute ride. I even do some of my reading and homework during the time. This past 6 months we have had a free light rail pass. Now they are charging $40 per semester for students, a small price to pay. I cannot wait for new additions to the light rail. We are a big city and we need something like this. As an ASU student, I think the light rail is a great addition to the valley of the sun!

Scottsdale wake up!
- How wonderful it would be to have light rail from ASU on Scottsdale road all the way to the Carefree highway and El Pedregal. The shopping, dining, drinking, theatre and sports all the way up and down the road would be tremendous! And then everyone would be connected to all venues all the way to downtown Phoenix. Certainly should help all the traffic congestion that continues to increase.

extension of rails
- The present rail has to be extended up to Anthem and 101 also we need a rail so we could avoid too much traffic congestions

- I've never used, but I think it wasn't good investment, because took to loog to built it, and a lot of people lost their businesses. Thank you!

101 route needed!
- The current rail is wonderful for getting down town. Kudos to those who made it happen! Now, we desperately need a route that runs near the course of the 101. We will see a huge benefit when that happens.

- I live at the corner of Campbell & Central and rely on the Light Rail almost daily. It is fantastic for my uses. I can get to downtown, my girlfriend can get to ASU and visitors have easy access to the airport. It's even better now that they have extended the weekend hours!

Too Far To Use Light Rail
- Whilem it seems to be successful in its limited scope, people like me, who don't live in downtown Phoenix or downtown Tempe, don't see much benefit. It takes too long and not much of a bargain to go to a Park and Ride and then pay for a daily ticket. It's probably a good thing for convention visitors.
