Southeast Valley Transit System Study

Southeast Valley Transit System Study


The Maricopa Association of Governments and Valley Metro are jointly conducting a study of the transit system in the Southeast Valley which includes; Apache Junction, Chandler, Florence, the Gila River Indian Community, Gilbert, Guadalupe, Maricopa, Mesa, Phoenix, Queen Creek, Tempe and the surrounding portions of Maricopa and Pinal Counties. The primary purpose of this study is to identify short, mid and long-term recommendations that will advance the transit system throughout the study area. The study will begin with an evaluation of the existing transit conditions followed by an analysis of the transit needs for the area. The analysis will include:

  • A review of existing services
  • Analysis of current and future travel demands to determine where there might be unmet needs
  • Planning for future population growth and economic development
  • Community input
