GLENDALE, Ariz. – Glendale Transit Services is hosting a series of four public open house meetings to gather community feedback regarding the current ride fare structure for Glendale Dial-A-Ride and GUS Bus public transportation services and a proposal for the implementation of new fare adjustments to take place in the late summer or early fall time frame, pending City Council approval.
The proposed fare adjustments outlined in the Transit Fare Review study, undertaken in response to City Council direction, include the elimination of fares for all passengers on GUS (Glendale Urban Shuttle), a $1 increase in one-way fare on the city’s Dial-A-Ride for senior, ADA/disabled and junior passengers (age 6-13) and an increase in one-way fare for the general public (age 14-64) from $2 to $5. Free fare for children age 5 and under will continue under the proposed ride fare structure plan.
“Glendale has held fares for transit services steady since 1991,” said Transit Administrator Kevin Link. “Our primary goal is to continue to effectively deliver quality transit services to all Glendale residents not only today, but well into the future.”
