New bus route coming to Ray Road Oct. 23
Enhancements to Routes 112 and 136 included

Chandler has worked with Valley Metro to bring a new local bus route to Ray Road through Chandler beginning Monday, Oct. 23.
 
Bus route 140 will run between 48th Street in Phoenix and Gilbert Road in Gilbert. Service will run every 30 minutes Monday through Saturday. Approximate hours of operation are 5 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Saturdays.

The new route will connect to Chandler’s Express Route 541 at Arizona Avenue and Ray Road, plus local routes 56, 66, 72, 81, 96, 104, 108, 112 and 136.
It has been nearly a decade since a bus route of comparable length has been added in Chandler, the last time being in 2008 when Route 96 on Dobson Road was extended from Guadalupe Road in Tempe to Snedigar Sportsplex in south Chandler.

Service enhancements also will occur on Route 112 (Arizona Avenue) in October. Bus 112 will operate every 15 minutes weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning Oct. 23. Fifteen minute service on Route 112 currently is offered only during morning and afternoon travel times during the week.

In addition, Route 136 (Gilbert Road) will be extended south a half mile to Ryan Road. Visit www.valleymetro.org for more information.
