Also further thoughts on Chandler Blvd/WilliamsField and Scottsdale Rd:
What about BRT? I know its an inferior mode, but especially in Scottsdale it seems more likely than LRT.
Also some kind of Skytrain or BRT or Modern Streetcar or something seems logical in a small loop starting in "Higley" at Higley Rd and Williamsfield, going East into ASU Poly and the Airport. Making stops at maybe 2 key ASU locations and whatever terminals. It would of course connect to the commuter rail station at Higley.

Unfortunately, there's no rail corridor to the NE, so they likely won't get commuter rail. Thats why I made sure to put LRT going up that way, plus they'd continue to have express buses along the SR51.
I suppose you could do some kind of elevated commuter rail on the SR51, but then you're getting really expensive.
My commuter rail route shown there isn't any original thought. Thats MAGs alignment.
