Gila River Indian Community Transit Needs Study

Gila River Indian Community Transit Needs Study



The Gila River Indian Community Transit Needs Study was a joint effort between the Gila River Indian Community (GRIC), the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), and the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG). The project began in December of 2019 and concluded in December of 2020.

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.
