Innovating for our community

In Tempe, we’re always looking for innovative ways to provide the highest level of service to our residents, businesses and visitors. We’re proud of our work to make Tempe a leader in everything from trash collection to transportation – and this month has been an exciting one for bringing new services to our city.

This week, we launched a new and improved 311 smartphone app and website that enables our residents to report issues across the city faster and more efficiently. We’re really excited about this exciting new tool, because it provides our staff the tools to address issues faster and let you know about trending topics across Tempe. Whether you want to report a pothole or graffiti, the 311 app is the place to do it! Be sure to download the new app today by searching “Tempe 311” in the app store. You’ll need the new app to use this service, as the previous version has been discontinued. You can also always report an issue online or by calling: 480-350-4311.



bikeshareimagex200Cycle Hop, our bike share service, also launched in Tempe this week. I was excited to come together with representatives from Cycle Hop and ASU to celebrate the expansion of this service to Tempe. With this service, Tempe’s comprehensive transportation network is even stronger – the combination of light rail, bus, bike infrastructure, Orbit and now Cycle Hop really compliments our City’s truly regional transportation network.

We’re always hard at work looking for ways to make Tempe stronger for you – our neighbors. Because it is projects like Cycle Hop and the new 311 system, among many others, that make Tempe the special and vibrant community that it is!
