Peoria transit staff invites the public to provide input on the city’s Dial-A-Ride program at two meetings next week.

The first will be 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Pinnacle Peak Public Safety facility, 23100 N. Lake Pleasant Parkway; the second, from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday in the Public Safety Administration Building, Peoria Room, 8351 W. Cinnabar Ave.

The city is eligible for reimbursement from the federal government for each Americans with Disabilities Act trip at a rate of $30.72 per trip, up to a maximum of $200,000 for the current fiscal year. Peoria’s fare structure does not require Dial-a-Ride passengers to become ADA-certified. The result, city officials said, is a small percentage of passengers with such a designation, which in turn has a negative impact in the city’s ability to receive reimbursements for such ridership.  

As a means to encourage riders who are ADA-certifiable, city staff is proposing to change the current rate structure. Proposed changes will be the topic of discussion at the two meetings.

For information about Peoria’s transit system, Dial-A-Ride or the public meetings, contact Maher Hazine at 623-773-5150 or email maher.hazine@peoriaaz.gov.
