Chandler resident Judy Cooper doesn’t always want to drive.

Cooper, 61, used to walk to her local grocery store before it closed last year, and she takes the bus to Phoenix for appointments. But public transportation doesn’t always get her where she needs to go.

Sometimes the bus doesn’t drop her off close enough to her destination, so she makes the rest of the trip on foot. The bus doesn’t go at all to parts of south Chandler where her friends live.

Cooper said she’d take public transit to south Chandler if it was an option. Her friends who live in the area — some don’t drive — could also benefit from expanded transit options to get to medical and other appointments, she said.
