New Route 660 Stop in Sun City on July 26

Phoenix, AZ (July 9, 2010)  A new stop will be added to the rural bus route that connects Arrowhead Towne Center, Surprise, Sun City, Sun City West, Wittmann and Wickenburg. Beginning Monday, July 26, passengers on Route 660 can travel to and from the Bell Recreation Center at 99th Avenue and Bell Road.

Travelers should also be aware that the last day of Saturday service is on July 24. Due to limited funding revenues and lower average daily ridership, the Saturday trips will be removed from the schedule.

Route 660 is funded by Proposition 400 funds, the countywide half-cent sales tax that funds regional transportation and federal funds. The smaller buses on Route 660 can carry up to 16 passengers and are completely accessible to persons with disabilities.

Route 660 also provides flexible stops. Choose your own pick-up and drop-off location up to three-quarters’ mile from the regular route. A one-day advance notice is required. Flexible stops can be made by calling 1-800-713-3809.
