METRO to serve Arizona Diamondbacks fans
Free parking at METRO park-and-rides
PHOENIX â€” If you take METRO light rail to an Arizona Diamondbacks game, METRO will provide a return trip, even in the event of extra innings. METRO encourages the use of light rail and its free park-and-rides to attend Arizona Diamondbacks home games.
In working with the venue, METRO will understand game attendance and progression to have return service planned appropriately.
Upon a gameâ€™s dismissal, trains will be queued to take passengers east or westbound from the 3rd Street stations. Third Street/Washington is the westbound platform; 3rd Street/Jefferson is the eastbound platform. Attendees are urged to arrive at the station immediately following the gameâ€™s close.
METRO staff will be present for the first week and a half of the Diamondbacks season to assist passengers with safe and seamless return trips.
Passengers are encouraged to purchase an all-day pass when they first board or use existing fare media (i.e. a 3-day, 7-day, 31-day pass or Platinum Pass) to save time. An all-day pass or more eliminates the need to wait in line to buy another single ride pass when leaving the event.
Note: METROâ€™s regular service hours across the 20-mile line are not being extended with this news release. METRO is supporting the games and game patrons with extra service as is required.
