South Chandler's First Bus Route is Coming!

chandler-bus-routeChandler has arrived..or at least the first bus route south of Pecos Road has.  Beginning this summer the first bus route will start on Dobson Road & Ocotillo with more routes to follow. 

The first route will begin in July and will run north to Riverview at the Red Mountain Freeway in Mesa.

Chandler’s Transportation Services Manager, Mike Normand announced to the Neighborhood Advisory Committee this week that Chandler can expect big increases in transit options and funding over the next few years.  This is great news for a wonderful community that was lacking mass transit.

 The next new route is planned for 2010 and will run on Gilbert Rd.  This route currently ends at Chandler-Gilbert Community College and passes through Gilbert and Mesa.  The new extended routh will continue south to Riggs Rd then east to Basha High School on Val Vista Drive.

In 2011 bus service will begin on Arizona Avenue in South Chandler and on Alma School in 2013.  Both lines will run to Ocotillo Rd and more lines will be added as the need arises.

By the end of this year, a park and ride lot will be completed at Tumbleweek park and the city has plans for another park and ride lot close to Snedigar Sportsplex next to the new Fulton Ranch Shopping Center on Alma School between Ocotillo and Chandler Heights.
