Like a train, the LINK can zip past traffic. LINK vehicles have traffic signal priority, meaning that stoplights wait to turn red until they pass. Plus, like a rail line, the LINK runs a streamlined route from the Superstition Springs Park-and-Ride to the Sycamore Transit Center, connecting to METRO light rail. LINK also connects the Chandler Park-and-Ride, located at Germann Rd and Hamilton St, to METRO light rail at the Sycamore Transit Center.
The REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN includes bus service on arterial streets that will function as an extension of the METRO Light Rail line. The LINK is one of these services, commonly called BRT - Bus Rapid Transit.
