"Expanding Northwest Valley Dial-a-Ride to include Sun City West provides a first-time travel option to the residents in this unique community," said Arleen Schenck, Valley Metro Mobility Services Manager. "Valley Metro is working to regionalize the Dial-a- Ride service on behalf of the customer and the communities where they travel.
