Valley Metro launches new route that includes Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport

Posted: Updated:

MESA, Ariz. -- Up until now there hasn't been any bus service at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

As Bruce Haffner explains, that's changing, thanks in part to Mesa City Councilman Scott Somers.

The new bus route, which travels from Mesa Community College at McKellips Road to the ASU Polytechnic Campus at Williams Field Road, is funded by Proposition 400, the half-cent countywide sales tax that funds transportation improvement projects and was approved by voters in 2004.

Route 184 will offer 30-minute service each weekday between 4:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. and weekend service between 5 a.m. and 9 p.m.
