Feedback needed on changes to Chandler bus service

Chandler, Ariz. – The City of Chandler is seeking public feedback on proposed reductions in bus service resulting from a decline in regional sales tax revenues. The meetings are scheduled for:

Tuesday, July 12
Open house: 6 to 6:30 p.m./Public hearing: 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.
Mesa City Plaza Building
20 East Main Street
, Room 170, Mesa

Tuesday, August 2
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Chandler City Council Chambers
88 E. Chicago Street, Chandler

Wednesday, August 3
5 to 7 p.m.
Desert Breeze Police Substation
251 N. Desert Breeze Blvd., Chandler

The reduced revenue will necessitate changes to Chandler’s bus service, including possible reductions in service hours, the frequency or days of service, and the potential elimination of bus routes.

Representatives from the City and Valley Metro will be present at the meetings to receive comments from the public regarding proposed service changes that will take effect in Jan. 2012.

A list of possible service reductions can be found on the City’s Web site, www.chandleraz.gov/transit, along with an online comment form. The public can also provide input by e-mailing the City’s Transit Office at transit@chandleraz.gov.

Final recommendations will be presented to the Chandler Transportation Commission on August 11 and the Chandler City Council on August 18.
