Queen Creek Residents Asked to Take Transit Survey

Valley Metro is conducting a survey to determine the need for additional transit services in the community of Queen Creek. The survey will help the Town identify opportunities to enhance services within Queen Creek and the Southeast Valley. It will also help determine:

• Transit services that may connect to the regional system
• Transit ridership market in Queen Creek
• Potential transit mode alternatives

The survey is available on June 1. Click here to access the survey online. Copies will also be available at several locations in Queen Creek:

• Recreation Annex, 21802 S. Ellsworth Road

• Queen Creek Town Hall, 22350 S. Ellsworth Road
• Horseshoe Park, 20464 E Riggs Rd

All surveys must be mailed back or completed online by July 21. Public input will help Town officials make informed decisions on how to invest in efficient and effective transit service for the local community. Valley Metro will provide the Town with service recommendations once the survey results have been analyzed.
