OVERVIEW METRO and the cities of Tempe and Chandler have been working together to analyze transit options in the Rural Road/Mill Avenue corridor. The Tempe South High Capacity Transit Study has evaluated a range of transit technologies and potential north-south alignments since the study’s inception in 2007. The transit options selected will help improve mobility in this city and region, support future growth and work in complement with the existing transit network. This fall, preliminary recommendations including modern streetcar in the Mill Avenue corridor and bus rapid transit on Rural Road will be presented for public comment and consideration by Tempe City Council, METRO Board of Directors and MAG Regional Council. The conclusion will be a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) – a single route and transit mode – that will move ahead in project development and an application for federal funding. Other transit project recommendations that have resulted from the study will also be approved and move forward as funding becomes available.
