ARIZ. (July 2, 2010) Construction work on the Goodyear Regional Park and
Ride began in May, and the long-awaited facility is expected to open this fall.
Conveniently located on Cornerstone Boulevard just west of Dysart Road on the

Valley Metro Route 562 non-stop bus service between Goodyear and Phoenix,
Monday through Friday.

restrooms, bike lockers, and native desert landscaping. The project received
funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
