Gila River Indian Community Transit Needs Study

The Gila River Indian Community (GRIC) Transit Needs Study was a joint effort between GRIC, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), and MAG.

The study assessed the need for enhanced and/or expanded transit service throughout GRIC, and identified potential connections to destinations and amenities outside the Community via an inclusive community engagement process.

The final report outlines a five-phased approach for improving transit service in the Community. Recommendations include increasing the days and hours of transit service operation; connecting to nearby regional destinations; improving bus stops and shelters; and building a transit center, as dictated by growth and demand.


The project began in December of 2019 and concluded in December of 2020.
