Other Service Options

In addition to ADA Paratransit service, there are other service options in several communities around the Valley. These include the RideChoice program and local non-ADA van and taxi services.

Ridechoice

RideChoice provides taxi service to seniors age 65 and above and to those certified as ADA Paratransit eligible at a deeply discounted rate. Service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and you can choose your own taxi provider. There is no requirement to book your trip in advance, and you do not have to share your ride. The amount and cost of service varies by community of residence, but in most cases, shorter trips cost less than or equal to a comparable ADA Paratransit trip. Some communities also allow a limited number of medical trips to be taken for no cost. To learn more about RideChoice or Valley Metro Paratransit, call (602) 716-2100 or send an email to paratransit@valleymetro.org.

Community-Sponsored Non-ADA Services

Many communities in the Valley Metro area also offer Dial-a-Ride and/or subsidized taxi services for seniors and persons certified as ADA Paratransit eligible that go above and beyond what is provided by ADA Paratransit. For example, these local programs might serve parts of the communities not covered by ADA Paratransit. Or they might serve seniors as well as people who are ADA Paratransit eligible.

The chart below lists other service options by community and provides contact information for each program.
