COOLIDGE, Ariz. (AP) - An Arizona city has drafted a five-year transit plan that includes expanding regional rail service and inviting a nearby city to join the system.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2b9RrlO ) that the Coolidge City Council has approved the plan on August 11.

Grants and Special Projects Director Jill Dusenberry told the council that she developed the plan with Moore & Associates over the past year and believes it is the best plan the transit department has had.

Jim Moore told the council that inviting Casa Grande to join the program is a priority.

He said there have already been some initial discussions between the cities and Casa Grande seems to be interested but has not made any commitments.
