Chandler Seeks Input on Bus Service Reductions

Chandler would like residents to comment on possible bus service reductions due to a significant decline in sales tax revenues.

The meetings are scheduled for:

  • 6:30 p.m., July 12, Room 170 of the Mesa City Plaza Building, 20 E. Main St. (RPTA regional public hearing for regional service changes)
  • End of August—date to be determined, Chandler Transportation Commission
  • Mid-September-date to be determined, Chandler City Council Meeting.

The reduced revenue will necessitate changes to Chandler’s bus service, including possible reductions in service hours, and elimination of routes.

Representatives from the city and Valley Metro will be present at the meetings to receive comments from the public. Any changes will take effect in January 2012.

A list of possible service reductions can be found by visiting, along with an online comment form. The public can also provide input by e-mailing the City’s Transit Office at

Final recommendations will be presented to the Chandler Transportation Commission on Aug. 11 and the City Council on Aug. 18.
