Transit Feasibility Study
As Surprise continues to grow, additional transportation options are needed to travel to areas within and adjacent to the city as well as the rest of the metropolitan region to reach jobs, schools, medical facilities, major attractions, friends and family, etc., without the need of a personal automobile. To meet these challenges, the City of Surprise is conducting Transit Feasibility Study. The plan has the following objectives:
- Understand existing transit conditions and perform a peer comparison
- Identify near- and long-term transit needs and services
- Develop transit service alternatives, recommendations and financial plan
- Develop a final implementation plan
Transit Study Timeline
We want to hear from you! Community input is an important part of this study. The study team will seek recommendations from community stakeholders throughout the course of the study, including posting current information on this website, conducting a transit survey, and conducting public meetings – as described below.
Public Involvement Activities:
Phase 1: Public Survey
The Transit Feasibility Survey was available March 2-March 31; results from the survey will be shared at future public workshops.
Phase 2: Public Workshop - summer 2018
The City of Surprise hosted a Public workshop on Wednesday, June 13 from 5:30p-7:30p at the Surprise Community Room, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza. The workshop provided attendees an opportunity to learn about transit, meet the study team, and participate in a mapping activity through an online wikimap, where they could preview and comment on potential routes, identify local area destinations, and build their own transit routes.
The interactive Wikimap is no longer available. Results from the Wikimap will be shared at future Transit Feasibility Study meetings.
Phase 3: Final Public Meeting – Tuesday, September 18
The city hosted a final Transit Study Public Workshop on Tuesday, September 18, 5-7 p.m. in the Community Room at Surprise City Hall, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza. During this meeting the team provided information on the recommended service alternatives in the short and long-term. Comments received on the alternatives will be incorporated into the final implementation plan.
