Getting from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to downtown is a breeze. Sky Harbor is four miles from the city center, and the typical cab fare is $15-20. A one-way ticket downtown aboard Valley Metro 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 Valley Metro Rail.
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.
Rail stations are located at the Phoenix Convention Center, Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, PHX Arena (formerly Talking Stick Resort Arena), Chase Field and CityScape.
With the expansion of the Valley Metro Light Rail system, bike share programs and ride-hailing services, it's easier than ever to explore Phoenix car free.
