RideChoice Program Comes to Goodyear
Valley Metro’s new RideChoice program is coming to Goodyear on Oct. 1. RideChoice is an on-demand transportation program for ADA paratransit certified people. In order to qualify for ADA certification, it must be determined that a person has a disability which limits travel on transit (bus, light rail) according to the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. The eligibility determination process considers the individual’s disability and functional ability to perform all tasks required to independently access, board, ride and de-board from local transit services. The combined interaction of disability with architectural and environmental conditions is also taken into account.
In Goodyear, after October 1 and once you are ADA certified you can enroll in RideChoice. Valley Metro will be conducting ADA Eligibility Certification assessments in Goodyear.
