Help Plan Future Transit Facilities for North Glendale

Today, Northwest Valley residents are able to park and catch an express bus at both the Home Depot at 59th Avenue and Loop 101, Arrowhead Towne Center or the Glendale Park-and-Ride located at Glendale Avenue and 99th Avenue. Local bus passengers are able to board buses at the Arrowhead Towne Center at 77th Avenue and Bell Road.  Although conveniently located, the park-and-ride and the mall transit center are shared use facilities and provide only limited parking and minimal passenger amenities. 

The City of Glendale Transportation Services Department has initiated a North Glendale Park-and-Ride/Transit Center Study to determine the appropriate location and type of new transit facility(ies) needed to serve current and future transit needs.

Study Area

The project study area is bounded by Loop 101 on the north, Bell Road on the south, Loop 101 on the west and 51st Avenue on the east. (Study area shown below; click map for a larger, printable PDF version.)

Glendale, AZ - ProcessStudy Process

In compliance with Federal Transit Administration requirements, the project team will conduct an alternative and financial analysis on the feasible site(s) and prepare a Categorical Exclusion documenting any environmental impacts of the proposed new facility.The study identified and evaluated 13 potential sites in northwest Glendale for their suitability in locating a future transit center and park-and-ride facility. An analysis of current and future transit passenger travel demand was also conducted to determine future facility needs.

Through this process, the following sites have been recommended as candidates for further evaluation. These include:

  • Four possible park-and-ride locations along Loop 101 between Union Hills Drive and 51st Avenue.

  • Two possible sites at Arrowhead Towne Center for a transit center and park-and-ride facility. One of these is the existing transit center location on the north side of the mall and the other is located on the south side of the mall. Both locations could be a stand-alone transit center or a transit center with a park-and-ride.

Transit passengers and other interested community members were asked to provide input on the potential sites to assist in the evaluation of these alternatives. Community input, combined with additional evaluation of the technical and financial feasibility of the potential sites, will be used to help develop a final location recommendation for these facilities.
