Orbit is a free bus route system that uses small mini-buses to serve residential areas and connect them to local destinations such as parks, shopping areas, other neighborhoods, major bus and light rail routes, schools and multi-generational centers. Orbit buses are smaller and quieter than traditional buses. Each bus holds about 20 passengers and travels along collector and residential streets. Residents may board Orbit anywhere along residential streets by signaling the driver.

An online comment form will be available Sept. 1. For information call (480) 350-2775 or visit www.tempe.gov/tim
