Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross and acting City Manager John Little will join Tempe City Councilwomen Shana Ellis and Onnie Shekerjian to talk to residents about the expansion of Scottsdale's Neighborhood Trolley service, which connects with Tempe's Orbit bus system.

The discussion takes place at 8 a.m. today at Paiute Neighborhood Center, 6535 E. Osborn Road, Scottsdale.

Since Scottsdale expanded the trolley service in late April, ridership has increased substantially each week.

The six-mile expansion takes riders farther south and west and provides access to more Scottsdale destinations and community centers.

It also connects with Tempe's free neighborhood circulator's "Earth" route, providing Scottsdale and Tempe residents more destinations and options to use free public transit.

"It gives residents in both cities the opportunity to reduce auto trips to run errands, shop and go out for a meal. Connecting these systems also provides additional access to schools, parks and community centers," Manross said in a written statement.

To support the Paiute Center as a new route destination, Scottsdale residents are encouraged to bring back-to-school supplies to the center during regular operating hours until Thursday.
