Chandler inches closer to possible light rail system

Chandler City Council on Oct. 23 unanimously approved a $687,500 study of future high-capacity transit along Arizona Avenue, inching the city closer to possible light rail, bus rapid transit or streetcar system.

Because the corridor runs north through Mesa, the Fiesta-Downtown Chandler Transit Corridor Study Agreement must be approved by Mesa City Council and Valley Metro Rail Board, which is expected to come in November. The study likely would begin in early 2015 and be complete by late 2016.

Chandler completed its first high-capacity transit study in December 2012. That was a more general and quicker look at whether the corridor could support future high-capacity transit, which includes light rail and bus rapid transit, Chandler Transportation Manager Dan Cook said.
