Gilbert

Valley Metro and the town of Gilbert are examining short and long-term transit investments to inform the transit vision of Gilbert’s Transportation Master Plan. 

Valley Metro and the town of Gilbert are reviewing and documenting existing conditions in the study area, for example, demography, land use and transit performance. The study team is also reviewing the status of recommendations from the most recent transit planning studies for the study area.

Valley Metro, in partnership with the town of Gilbert, is identifying and analyzing priority short and long-term transit investments, informing the transit vision of Gilbert’s Transportation Master Plan, which is being updated concurrently. This study will analyze Gilbert’s rapidly developing landscape and reexamine existing transit recommendations to best serve growing transportation needs while managing increased traffic. Overall, the recommendations of this study will: 

  • Improve internal circulation
  • Enhance commuter service offerings
  • Provide new regional service connections
  • Serve new residential and employment centers

As a component to Gilbert’s Transportation Master Plan update, all results from this study will be included in the Transportation Master Plan. This study will also be used as a tool to identify service enhancements for prioritization in funding both locally and for the anticipated Proposition 400 extension.
