Peoria

Now open at 8323 W Peoria Ave!

The Peoria Park and Ride at Old Town provides additional space for Peoria's transportation needs. The new park-and-ride provides connections to three bus routes: Route 83, Route 106 and the Grand Ave Limited. 

    The Peoria Park and Ride at Old Town was constructed by Valley Metro in partnership with city of Peoria. It opened for service on September 23, 2019, and serves Route 83 and Route 106, as well as the Grand Ave Limited. The park-and-ride is the second in the state to feature pervious concrete, a more porous concrete alternative that helps recharge the local groundwater and reduces the heat island effect. 

    The Peoria Park and Ride at Old Town also features:

    • A total of 71 spaces: 67 regular size, 4 ADA size. 49 spaces are covered.
    • Six secured bicycle parking spaces with Bike Lids.
    • Two charging stations for electric vehicles.
    • Security cameras and timed awning lights for increased night visibility.

    Valley Metro, in partnership with the city of Peoria, conducted a study to identify a new transit facility location to replace the existing nearby sites and better meet Peoria’s needs as it grows.The study evaluated five locations, focusing on type and size of facility, and provided opportunities for public input. It found that a park-and-ride adjacent to Grand Avenue and the BNSF Railway tracks in Old Town Peoria would best meet Peoria’s short-term and mid-term transportation needs and provide an opportunity for future expansion, including support of potential express service and commuter rail.
