Valley Metro and Avondale Celebrate New Park-and-Ride

Beginning October 27, 2014 commuters can drive to the new park-and-ride in Avondale and catch Express bus Route 563 to downtown Phoenix. Four roundtrips will serve the new facility each weekday. The park-and-ride is also available for carpools and vanpools. Bike lockers are available for cyclists.

Join the city of Avondale and Valley Metro for the kick off event of this new service.  Giveaways and refreshments will be provided 5:30 – 7 am at the location of the new park-and-ride.

“This service provides riders a stress-free ride to and from work where you can read, work, or just relax,”  said Kristen Sexton, Transit Coordinator for the city of Avondale. “Why fight the traffic when Valley Metro can do the driving?”

Avondale’s new park-and-ride is located at 11390 W. Dale Earnhart Dr. (Avondale Blvd and Roosevelt Streets), Avondale, AZ 85323.
