Rural Bus Route 660 Surveys Begin in December

Phoenix, AZ (Dec. 1, 2010)  Valley Metro is asking members of the communities living or working near the rural bus Route 660, which travels along Bell Road and US-60 between Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale and West Plaza in Wickenburg, to provide their travel information. The data gathered in the survey process will be used to enhance the rural bus route that makes four roundtrips each weekday and has about 5,000 boardings annually. Major stops along the route include the Sun City West Foundation, Wells Country Store in Wittmann, and the Wickenburg Municipal Complex.

The surveying process will include questionnaires on-board the Route 660 vehicles, postcard mailings and telephone calls to residents living one mile from the route, and employer surveys of businesses along the route.

Organizations, associations or community centers along the route area that would like to participate in a Route 660 survey are asked to contact Valley Metro at 602.262.7433 for more information.
