Getting Around

There are several ways to navigate the city, including public transportation and transportation services such as taxis, rental cars, charter services and more.

The Valley Metro Light Rail runs from central Phoenix, through downtown, to Tempe and Mesa in the east. Stations are close by and run right by some of the area’s top attractions, such as the Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona Science Center, Chase Field, Talking Stick Resort Arena (formerly US Airways Center), Arizona State University and more.

A one-way pass on the light rail costs $2 or an all-day pass is $4, which can be purchased at the ticket vending machines at each station.

Amtrak's southern most route, Sunset Limited, also makes a stop in nearby Maricopa.
