Meridian Fixed-Route Service

Fixed-route service planned in Meridian

VRT has been working with the City of Meridian, local businesses, and the general public to develop a new route serving the heart of Meridian. The proposed alignment from Ten Mile and Franklin roads to Kleiner Park via Pine will connect approximately 21,000 jobs with almost 20,000 people. It will support the significant employment and residential developments being planned for downtown Meridian.

The public showed a strong interest in service on Fairview, especially because it would support access to the public library and grocery stores. However, given that the service will only run during the rush hour period, it was determined that Pine Street provided the most direct access to the largest employment centers along the corridor.

The following are some of the housing and job/activity centers that the new route will serve:

The Loft at Ten Mile

Meridian High School

Meridian City Hall

Meridian Community Center

Ada County West Campus

Scentsy

Blue Cross of Idaho

Meridian Crossroads

The Village/Kleiner Park

Meridian currently helps fund two ValleyRide intercountry routes that make stops within the city, Harvest Transit, which provides Monday through Saturday dial-a-ride type service within the city limits, and the Rides2Wellness medical transportation service.

This new route is the first ValleyRide fixed-route service in Meridian that serves the downtown area. It is expected to begin service in early 2021.

A map of the pathway for the new fixed route in Meridian is below. The VRT Board approved the route on April 6, 2020. It is expected to go into service during fall 2021.
