Bus routes changing in the Phoenix-metro

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - Monday, Valley Metro will reduce or eliminate routes due to budget cuts. Those cuts affect both bus service and Light Rail.

Instead of running every 10 minutes between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., the Light Rail trains will run every 12 minutes from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Metro is also adding five more holidays.

Nine bus routes are being discontinued. Dozens of others routes -- including local routes, Express and RAPID route, circulator routes and rural routes -- will change in some manner.

For more information on both the service changes and the potential strike, visit ValleyMetro.org. You can also call Valley Metro Customer Service at 602-253-5000, TTY 602-261-8208.
