Tempe requests feedback about future transit service changes

TEMPE, Ariz. – Tempe residents are encouraged to attend public meetings or provide feedback using an online comment form about potential changes to the Tempe transit system.  The purpose of these meetings is to get input from passengers on potential changes that may occur in July 2011.

These meetings will aid in developing the service changes necessary to help address a forecasted budget deficit due to the slowing economy. The Tempe transit system is funded primarily by a half cent sales tax, which has dramatically decreased causing Tempe to reevaluate the transit system in order to reduce costs. Transit service proposals will be available for comment from Feb. 7 through Feb. 28 at
