In September 2018, ASU, Valley Metro and the City of Tempe conducted a survey (primarily of riders) to determine if the routing, hours and frequency for the FLASH route, serving ASU campus and downtown Tempe, were meeting the needs of its users. Based on the survey results, the route and hours of operation changed on May 7, 2019 to better connect riders to the growing destinations in and adjacent to campus and integrate with the overall transit network in the downtown Tempe area.
