Casa Grande’s CG LINK ride service debuted in October 2023 and picked up its 5,000th rider by the end of the year. The service will continue offering free rides through April.
The ride service is available to everyone on a first-come, first-served basis and for any trip from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Reservations are required and can be made through the CGLink app available from Google Play and the App Store, online at book.cglink.rideco.com or by calling 520.509.6900. Riders can also text CGLINK to 38276 to subscribe to transit service updates and information.
The shared ride service will take customers to and from any address within its service area, bounded by Cottonwood Lane on the north, Henness Road on the east, Doan and Peters roads and Trekell Avenue on the south and Shultz Street, Main Avenue and Chuichu Road on the west.
The route extends east along Florence Boulevard to the Promenade mall and north on Peart Road to the Casa Grande Recreation Center and medical offices at Kortsen Road.
The rides can connect to CART bus stops within its service area. The climate-controlled vehicles are wheelchair accessible and travel training is available for those with disabilities. Riders can book their trips from one day to one week ahead and are asked to be at their pickup location 2 minutes ahead of their scheduled time.
