Phoenix To Hire Homeless Outreach Team For Light Rail

The Phoenix City Council Wednesday night approved a plan to hire a homeless outreach team specifically for the light rail.

That team will talk with homeless people on the train or on the station platforms, offering services and information.

Albert Santana is the city’s director of High Capacity Transit.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
