Central Station Reopens on July 4

After almost a year of ARRA-funded reconstruction, Phoenix’s newly refurbished Central Station will reopen to bus service and passengers on July 4, 2011.  Eight of the Valley Metro bus routes displaced during the project move back into the station:  Local routes: 0-Central Ave (northbound), 1-Washington/Jefferson, 3-Van Buren (westbound), 8-7th Ave. (north and southbound), 7- 7th St. (northbound), and 10-Roosevelt/Grant (eastbound); and Express routes 571 and 573.  Other bus routes moved during the project will remain in their new stops on the streets surrounding Central Station.

Because July 4 is a holiday, bus service will be limited and run on the Sunday schedule found in the Transit Book.  Bus service and customer services fully reopen at Central Station on Tuesday, July 5, 2011.

July is also the start of new service days for Phoenix’s four staffed transit centers, which will open only Monday through Friday, including Central Station whose customer service hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more passenger convenience, fare vending machines on-site are available 24 hours a day and retailers who sell Valley Metro transit passes can be found at or by calling Valley Metro customer service at 602-253-5000.
