East Valley RIDE Choice provides alternate transportation services in Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert. These alternatives are available to qualified passengers for non-emergency travel.
Mileage Reimbursement (Mesa only)
Qualifying Mesa residents receive a 44 cents per mile reimbursement for car trips when a non-residing friend or family member drives them. The passenger chooses their own driver—East Valley RIDEChoice does not assign drivers. Reimbursements are made directly to approved East Valley RIDEChoice passengers, who are then required to pass along the reimbursement to their volunteer drivers. The Mileage Reimbursement Program is for senior citizens 65 or over and persons with disabilities who possess a current disability certification. Reimbursement is available up to 300 miles per month.
Coupons for Cabs
This program is for Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa and Tempe residents 65 or over and persons with disabilities who possess a current disability certification. Under this program, participants request coupon booklets at a nominal co-pay of $2.50 for one book, valued at $10. The coupons can then be applied toward the fares of participating taxi companies.
