For more information on the following topics, click the links below:

ADA Reservation Service:

In compliance with federal regulations, the City of Glendale offers an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Service to eligible persons who, because of a disability, cannot use Valley Metro fixed-route bus service. The ADA service covers the same routes and operates the same hours as Valley Metro fixed –route bus service.

Reservations can be made by calling (623) 930-3515. For all other questions, comments, or problems please call (623) 930-3501.

Who can use the ADA Service?

Only people who are unable to use regular fixed-route bus service because of a disability. Persons wanting to use this service must fill out an eligibility application and be certified to use the ADA service. Please call Valley Metro’s ADA Eligibility Office at 602-716-2100.

Can Anyone Else Use the ADA Reservation Service?

Yes. Attendants and companions of ADA certified riders may also use the Service.

What is an Attendant?

An attendant is a personal care assistant who must accompany the ADA-certified passenger in order for that person to make the trip safely. The need for an attendant must be identified in the ADA application. Attendants do not pay a fare.

What is a Companion?

A companion is a person riding with an ADA-certified passenger who is picked up and dropped off at the same location as the ADA-certified passenger. Federal law states that one companion may accompany the ADA-certified passenger and must pay the same fare as the ADA-certified rider. Additional companions will be accommodated on a space available basis.

In What Area does the ADA Reservation Service Operate?

The service operates within ¾ of a mile to established fixed-route bus. ADA certified passengers must be picked up and dropped off within the ¾ mile limit. The ADA service operates the same hours and days as the Valley Metro bus service.

How much is the Fare for ADA Eligible Passengers?
