Why I Ride Valley Metro

Valley Metro rider and ASU student Alexis Kuhbander

Hello, my name is Alexis Kuhbander. This fall I started my final semester at Arizona State University and I am happy to say that I've used Valley Metro services since my first day as a Sun Devil! I want to share with you and other college students what my commute is like and how I've benefited from using public transportation by taking you "inside my ride."

Careers in Transit

When you think about jobs in public transportation, bus operators are probably the first thing that come to mind, right?

Well, it takes a bunch of awesome people like these to move 250,000 riders a day in metro Phoenix, and even more visionaries to help plan what our transit system will look like years from now. In fact, more than 400 employees at Valley Metro dedicate their time and talents to moving people, building the community and driving the economy.

May 18 is National Public Transportation Career Day. A day to designed to introduce students of all ages to careers in public transit. In honor of the day, we’d like to introduce you to members of the Valley Metro family who are making a difference today and those who are the future of transportation.
