A fare change for passengers who utilize the non-ADA Dial-a-Ride service will go into effect beginning October 1, 2013. In addition to the fare change, non-ADA service becomes available for same-day trips only: no advance reservations will be accepted.
The following cities will be impacted by these changes: Chandler, Tempe, Scottsdale and unincorporated areas of Maricopa County.
ADA DAR is unaffected and remains at $4.00/trip.
Passengers who utilize the non-ADA Dial-a-Ride service are encouraged to attend an open house to learn about these fare changes.

East Valley DAR provides door-to-door service that has transitioned from a multi-destination mini-bus to a taxi cab service providing individual trips. Click here for more information.
The non-ADA fare has remained at $1.00 for nearly 10 years while the cost for ADA service has steadily increased. The current cost for an ADA DAR trip is $4.00, which is two times the local base fare for bus and light rail. In order to ensure equity for service provided, an appropriate fare should be charged for non-ADA door-to-door service.
