PHX Public Transit Hosts Bus Event for New RAPID™ Service

The Phoenix Public Transit Department is opening the bus doors to potential new passengers with a free “open bus” event July 15, 2012 for the new RAPID™ Central/South Mountain route serving south and southwest areas of Phoenix.  Passengers can board an air-conditioned display bus, test out the seats, get transit schedules, and learn about other transit services. The new route provides commuter service from the 27th Ave. and Baseline Rd. park-and-ride to downtown Phoenix. 

The event will be held on July 15, 7-9 a.m., 2727 W. Baseline Road, which is the southwest corner of 27th Avenue and Baseline Road. A new 180-day pilot of RAPID service in the South Mountain community will begin operating on July 23. Information about the new RAPID route and all Valley Metro services are available by clicking here.
