ValleyRide: What’s Happening

Road construction, planned events, and holidays can result in service changes, temporary route detours or relocation of bus stops. Whenever possible, we will post short-term service changes on this home page. For long-term service changes, you can  ACCESS THE RIDER ALERTS INFORMATION PAGE      

Rider Alert - Fairview/Cole intersection (Routes 7A/7B)
     Phase 2 of the Fairview/Cole interchange reconstruction has resulted in a detour of a section of Route 7A. The detour has resulted in the temporary closure of two regular inbound stops on southbound Cole Road. Also, lane restrictions on Fairview at the Cole intersection has resulted in the closure of two 7A/7B outbound and inbound stops (Fairview and Cole and Fairview and El Dorado). To learn more about these and other long- and short-term service changes, please access our rider alerts information page

Rider Alert - Route 18 Detour
Construction work has prompted a long-term detour of Route 18. The outbound detour will begin at the first roundabout. The bus will turn right on to Parkcenter/Warm Springs at the roundabout. It will then turn right on E Warm Springs Avenue, Left on Mill Spur (will circle the pool), right on E Warm Springs Avenue and left on to Parkcenter/Warm Springs back to the roundabout. It will stay on regular route from the roundabout to downtown.
The inbound and outbound stops at Parkcenter and Wise Way are closed. Temporary stop cones have been placed on E. Parkcenter Boulevard past the bridge but before the first turnaround. Please note that the stop at Parkcenter and Pennsylvania is closed. A temporary stop has been placed on the far side of the intersection.

Bus locator portal available for public use


Valley Regional Transit (VRT) has partnered with intelligent transportation system provider Routematch Software to create an online bus locator portal that shows where a ValleyRide bus is currently located. The portal allows riders to quickly and conveniently view where buses are in real time on any given route through an interactive map. This real time information is instantaneously pulled from tablet devices that capture GPS information from buses on the 26 ValleyRide bus routes. In the event that a bus stops transmitting its location data or is not equipped with GPS, it will not appear on this website, even though it is in service. In cases when there is no bus locator information, you can call RideLine customer service at 345-RIDE (7433). You can access the portal by clicking on the map above or by entering in your web browser.
