Peoria Dial-A-Ride was formed in 1989 to provide basic transportation services for the residents of Peoria. Since that time the Transit Division has tripled in size, provides greater services and completes approximately 30,000 transports annually.
Dial–A–Ride and ADA / Para-transit services use a shared ride concept that mixes elements of traditional bus service with characteristics of taxi cab service. In addition to our regular service, a special program called Dial–A–Ride Plus (DAR+) allows us to transport Peoria residents to the neighboring medical campuses of Sun City and Glendale (restrictions apply, please call (623) 773-7435 for information).
