Posted at 5:19 PM, Jan 22, 2021

Light rail transit is a very common form of transportation for large cities all over the world and it could be coming to the Treasure Valley.

The Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho, or COMPASS is working with AECOM's Vice President Bob Post to answer some questions that people may have about how the system would work in the Treasure Valley.

A high-capacity transit system for the valley is still 20 years or more away, but that is why COMPASS believes now is the time to start planning.

If you are interested in learning more about how high-capacity transit could affect the Treasure Valley or what next steps may look like COMPASS will be holding an online event on Tuesday, Jan 26 at 2:00 p.m.

The event is free to attend and you can RSVP by email,, or phone, 208-475-2232.

COMPASS also has a survey on their website for Ada and Canyon County residents to share their preferences for future high-capacity transit.
