Valley Metro, the light rail system that runs from Phoenix through Mesa and Tempe uses light rail vehicles built by Kinki-Sharyo.

Arizona requires that 1% of the cost of transit projects be used for public art. As a result, the stations are stunning. The stations may have sculpture, mosaics or murals. Here is one such installation of public art. It is titled “Drawing Room” by Ralph Helmicks and is at the station at Center and Main Streets in Mesa AZ. A fifty foot tall conical tower comprised of the silhouettes of community members cut from sheets of stainless steel. It is also illuminated at night.
