Goodyear gets express bus to downtown Phoenix

[Source: Elias C. Arnold, Arizona Republic] — Southwest Valley commuters on Monday will have a new way to downtown Phoenix when Valley Metro begins express bus service from Goodyear.  Buses will depart from a Goodyear park-and-ride facility three times each morning starting about 5:45 a.m.  Return buses leave Phoenix starting at 4:15 p.m.  Trips are scheduled to take about an hour.  “The biggest advantage is going to be probably saving money” and making better use of time, such as reading on the way to work, said Susan Tierney, a Valley Metro spokeswoman.

Commuters can ride for free through next Friday.  After that, trips are $1.75 each way or $68 for a monthly pass, which many downtown employers subsidize, Tierney said.  The buses pick up from Goodyear’s first park-and-ride lot, on Cornerstone Boulevard west of Dysart Road.   [Note: To read the full article, click here.]
