Transportation Downtown

Getting from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to downtown is a breeze. Sky Harbor is 4 miles from the city center, and the typical cab fare is $15-20. A one-way ticket downtown aboard Metro Light Rail is $2.

Once downtown, meeting attendees will find that the Phoenix Convention Center is within easy walking distance of hotels, restaurants, pro sports venues and theaters. Even more dining and entertainment options are accessible via pedal cab, Grid Bike and Metro Light Rail.

Light rail links downtown to nearby restaurants, nightlife and museums. The sleek trains glide across the city 18-20 hours per day (operating until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays), and an all-day pass costs only $4.

Light-rail stations are located at the Phoenix Convention Center, Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Talking Stick Resort Arena (formerly US Airways Center), Chase Field and CityScape.
