Regional Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Feasibility Study 

The Regional Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Feasibility Study is exploring the interest in and feasibility of implementing BRT in the MAG Region. Working in partnership with member agencies, the study will also recommend a preliminary set of locations where a regional BRT network could connect to the planned City of Phoenix BRT investments.

The results of the regional study will serve as a springboard for member agencies to host their own discussions about the potential for implementing BRT. This study and the associated outreach process will give communities a head start in future implementation through an enhanced understanding of BRT opportunities, challenges and feasibility.

High Capacity Transit

In 2012, Chandler identified potential high-capacity transit corridors along three arterial roadways: Rural Road, Arizona Avenue, and Chandler Boulevard. These corridors are defined as routes for consideration of efficient, expedited public transit service such as bus rapid transit (BRT), street car, or light rail. Final Report - Arizona Avenue High Capacity Transit Study 

In 2017, the Fiesta-Downtown Chandler Transit Corridor Study was completed. Valley Metro, in partnership with Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert initiated the study to identify the potential and requirements for short, mid and long-term transit investments with the Arizona Avenue/Country Club Drive corridor.

Carpooling Tips

Every carpooling participant takes another car off the road, which means less congested roads and highways. As more people take part in carpooling programs or organize carpools within their workplaces, overall traffic congestion will decrease, which reduces fuel consumption, commute time, and the cost of road repairs.
