Valley Metro provides public transit options to residents of greater Phoenix and Maricopa County including the planning and operations of a regional bus system and the development and operations of 26 miles of light rail. In fiscal year 2017, total ridership for the system was 66 million passengers. Seven high-capacity transit extensions are under construction that will create a 66-mile system by 2034.

Valley Metro also offers transit options including alternative transportation programs for seniors and people with disabilities, commuter van pools, online carpool matching, bus trip mapping, bicycle safety and telework assistance. Two boards of directors set the policy direction for the agency with the intent of advancing the regional public transit system. In October, the boards approved a “Respect the Ride” Code of Conduct, focusing on creating a safe and positive rider experience, while also discouraging disruptive, intrusive, unsafe or inappropriate behaviors in a public setting.
