East Valley Dial-a-Ride Fares Increase on July 1

Mesa, AZ (June 13, 2011)

The East Valley Dial-a-Ride service for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) customers will experience a $.50 cent increase to $3.50 per trip effective Friday, July 1. The current fare is $3.00. The fares were scheduled to change each year after a 2009 fare policy went into effect that stated the ADA or paratransit service in the East Valley would experience increases in fares each year until fares were two times the local bus cash fare or $3.50, as allowed by the ADA.

East Valley Dial-a-Ride ADA service is provided in the cities and towns of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale and Tempe.  East Valley Dial-a-Ride non-ADA service, which is also available to persons age 65 and older, is offered in Chandler, Scottsdale and Tempe. Flyers will be placed on vehicles beginning June 20.
