Valley Metro adds fare vending machines

Posted on March 14, 2013

Phoenix-based Valley Metro is making it easier, quicker and more convenient for bus passengers in the East Valley to purchase fares before riding transit. Riders on the Main Street LINK, Arizona Avenue/Country Club Drive LINK, and bus routes 40 and 112 have an option to purchase fares prior to boarding bus and rail.

“Purchasing fares in advance saves time and money for our passengers,” said Steve Banta, CEO, Valley Metro. “Adding new fare vending machines is not only convenient, it allows the freedom of being able to purchase the pass that best meets their travel needs.”

Sixteen new fare vending machines are now operating at a dozen LINK stations along Main Street and Arizona Avenue/Country Club Drive. LINK bus service connects directly to Valley Metro light rail service at Sycamore Station in Mesa and a transit pass allows riders to board both systems.

Fare vending machines will offer regular and Reduced All-Day, 7-Day, 15-Day and 31-Day passes at select LINK stations.

Local bus, light rail and LINK share the same fare structure and pass types. Passes can be purchased from light rail, LINK or transit center fare vending machines, online or at nearly 700 valleywide retail locations.
