Valley Metro encouraged public input between May 4–June 5, 2020 on the following service changes. These changes will take effect on October 26, 2020.
- Route 62—Hardy Dr: Modify route for southbound trips to travel along Ash Ave. instead of Farmer Dr. to maintain consistency with northbound trips.
- Route 108—Elliot Rd/48th St: Modify route to remove deviation along San Marcos Pl. to Chilton Dr. and Arizona Ave. Route will continue along Elliot Rd. for more efficient service.
- Tempe FLASH: Modify route to directly serve Lot 59 and additional ASU activity centers. Modify runtime frequency to every 10 minutes until 6 p.m., and then 15 minutes until end of service.
- Tempe Orbit Earth: Modify route to travel along Rio Salado Pkwy & Rural Rd. to better serve activity areas at Rural Rd. & Playa del Norte Dr. Two bus stops at the Curry Rd. & Mill Ave. intersection will be eliminated for more efficient service.
