Transportation Safety Zone

The city of Scottsdale by Council Resolution can establish Transportation Safety Zones for the purpose of relieving traffic congestion.

Inside a Transportation Safety Zone, dedicated traffic lanes may be established for use by taxis, limousines, passenger carts, pedicabs and other for-hire vehicles for the purpose of picking up and dropping off passengers.

Additionally, Passenger Convenience Areas (PDF) may be established where for-hire vehicles temporarily park to wait for passengers.

The City Council created a Transportation Safety Zone in Scottsdale's Downtown entertainment district - east of Buckboard Trail, from Sixth Avenue to Camelback Road.
