Bus service being added Route 96 (Dobson Road) to serve Price Road
The City of Chandler is modifying bus service on Route 96 (Dobson Road) to serve a portion of the Price Road corridor during peak commuting hours. The change will go into effect Mon., Oct. 27.
Route 96 currently serves Dobson Road south of Pecos Road during peak hours, including Intel and Orbital Sciences (see attached route map). The modification will divert the route to Price Road between Germann and Queen Creek roads, providing new bus service to major employment centers such as
Wells Fargo, Continuum, Amkor, and Isagenix.
Two trips are being added to Route 96 to serve employees working longer hours, resulting in weekday service hours of approximately 5:30 to 9 a.m. and 2 to 6:30 p.m. Visit valleymetro.org for a complete schedule of Route 96.
The route change will mean four existing bus stops on Dobson Road between Germann and Queen Creek roads will no longer receive service, but these
stops were underutilized, accounting for less than 10 percent of passenger boardings south of Pecos Road.
