Valley Metro Light Rail

Phone: (602) 253-5000
Websites: www.valleymetro.org

  • The Valley Metro Light Rail is a terrific method to access a good portion of the valley from Phoenix to Tempe to Mesa. It is fully wheelchair accessible and quite inexpensive. It generally runs east/west and a bit north into Phoenix, making approximately 28 stops along the way including many of Phoenix's top attractions, cultural destinations and hotels.
  • The Light Rail route is limited and does not generally go north or south throughout the greater Phoenix area. To augment the geography you can take the Metro City Bus which is fully wheelchair accessible and covers a broad footprint throughout the Phoenix area.
  • It's easy to roll-on /off with only an inches between the platform and train.
  • There is plenty of available seating but make sure your brakes are working well because you're not locked down.
  • There are no restrooms or food on the Metro Light Rail.
  • Take the 3rd St./Washington (Westbound) or 3rd St./Jefferson (Eastbound) exit for Chase Field, US Airways Center.
  • There are many great downtown Phoenix hotels located within a block of scheduled stops in Phoenix. A quick, inexpensive route from the airport. About a 15 minute ride to downtown Phoenix from the airport.
  • Take the Mill Avenue/Third Street exit for Arizona State University (although ASU has a huge campus).

Phoenix Super Shuttle

Phone: (800) 258-3826
Website: www.supershuttle.com

  • Super Shuttle picks you up from your home, office, or hotel and takes you to and from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. It is generally more economical than a Sky Harbor taxi or limo.
  • The Phoenix Super Shuttle service includes 2 accessible vans with lifts that accommodate 5 passengers including the wheelchair.
  • They go anywhere in the Phoenix area and take you anywhere you need to go; they will pick you up at your house if you wish.
  • It is best to go online and schedule a reservation as well as check pricing (which varies considerably) but you can also call for service.
