METRO “Get on Board with Baxter” news conference – tomorrow at 7 a.m.
METRO light rail and special events are a natural pairing. Arizona Diamondbacks home games are perfect opportunities to park free and ride light rail.
METRO, city of Phoenix and the Arizona Diamondbacks will get to show D-backs fans how easy and affordable it is to use light rail by “getting on board with Baxter” tomorrow morning.
Morning commuters will have a chance to win D-backs tickets for that evening’s game. Afternoon game-goers will enjoy free D-backs merchandise.
