We have written several articles about how the arts community is loving the light rail line. Places like the Heard Museum and the ASU Art Museum are some of the more popular destinations, but recently I have had several people call looking for information on how to travel to the Phoenix Symphony via light rail. Today’s message went kind of like this:
Hello, I am trying to find out about the use of the light rail to attend the Phoenix Symphony. Particularly I want to know what time one would board Central and Camelback to attend the Symphony and to know what stop to use for Symphony Hall. I would also like to know what time I would need to board the train to attend an 8:00 show.
My response would be something like this:
Thank for contacting www.RailLife.com concerning your upcoming trip on the light rail in Phoenix. I am enclosing some links for reference concerning travel times and Symphony Hall for your review.
First is our light rail map which can help you navigate the system.
Second is this information concerning approximate travel times for the light rail system:
Symphony Hall is located near the Convention Center Station at 3rd Street and Washington. From Central and Camelback, you will be traveling south and will probably want to exit at the Jefferson / 1st Avenue station. From there, walk a few steps north to Washington and then proceed east a couple of blocks on Washington to Symphony Hall at 75 N 2nd Street (at Washington). When you are leaving Symphony Hall, you can use the 3rd Street and Washington station to get you back to your starting point of Central and Camelback.
