Valley Metro lowers fare vending machines for accessibility

Posted on September 2, 2014

With the lowering of 62 fare vending machines over the next three years, Valley Metro and the City of Phoenix are helping improve accessibility for everyone.

The adaptation was prompted by a Phoenix councilmember after a local veteran in a mobility device asked her for assistance in purchasing a transit pass.

While the fare vending machines along the 20-mile line meet height requirements required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, it was determined that lowering the pedestals under the machines would help all riders with purchasing fares. One fare vending machine at each station entryway will be lowered for a total of 62 machines.

On future extensions, the lower pedestal will also be used.
