Paid fare zones installed

As part of Valley Metro’s new “Respect the Ride” code of conduct, fare zone striping is being installed at each rail station.

The newly installed signs and clearly marked “fare zones” help to raise passenger awareness of the rules of riding as well as to more strongly delineate the enforcement areas.

50th Street Station

The first new station along the existing Valley Metro Rail system will serve the communities and future development near 50th and Washington streets. The station will provide access to the Ability360 facility and neighboring business community, as well as support transit-oriented development planned for the area.

Special guests at board meeting

Valley Metro had a special guest at its January 18 board meeting. Harshita Rajesh, a Basis Peoria Primary student, was recognized for her winning artwork in the 13th Annual Valley Metro Cool Transit STUFF 3rd Grade Art Contest. She was joined by her family and teacher who all beamed with pride when she signed her winning artwork, next to Valley Metro Board Chair Councilwoman Suzanne Klapp and Valley Metro Rail Board Chair Councilmember Chris Glover.
