Scottsdale Trolley Routes

Scottsdale free trolley system links residents and visitors to entertainment, restaurants, shopping, schools, parks and health services. Riders can transfer between four trolley routes, the free Tempe Orbit Earthlinks to external site route and Valley Metrolinks to external site bus and routes.  

Proposed Scottsdale Transit Changes 2018

The Scottsdale Transportation Department will propose changes to Scottsdale trolley and bus routes at the Transportation Commission meeting. The commission will vote whether to recommend proposed changes to the Scottsdale City Council. If approved, the proposed changes would take place in October. 

Proposed changes include:

  • Expanded free trolley service to Mustang Transit Center, Via Linda Senior Center and Pavilions Shopping Center
  • Consolidation of Camelback, Neighborhood and Miller routes into two routes
  • Consistent 20-minute frequency for all trolleys (except the Downtown Trolley, which will remain at 10-minute frequency)
  • Optimization of bus and trolley routes in response to current ridership trends

The following maps show current and proposed transit service:

If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, you can submit comments via the commission’s online public comment form or contact Principal Transit Planner Ratna Korepella at 480-312-7630 or RKorepella@scottsdaleaz.gov
