PHOENIX — With guests in town and time away from the daily grind this holiday season, consider METRO light rail as your connection to the Valley’s best special events and destinations. METRO has created an event listing featuring special and holiday-themed events taking place at venues located along the 20-mile line. Download this guide from the “Good to Know” section of www.metrolightrail.org.
This guide was developed to give riders a glimpse of the wide-ranging event opportunities available within walking distance from the line. It features event details, venue contact information, closest light rail stations and notations for free, family fun, holiday and Rail Ride events.
The Rail Ride event program is a ticket partnership between METRO and the US Airways Center and Phoenix Suns. Any US Airways Center event ticket serves as your light rail pass for that day – four hours before the event and through the end of the transit day. More information on the Rail Ride program can be found on the METRO homepage.
While this guide showcases dozens of events occurring through the first of the year, it is not meant to be a complete listing. For a more complete list of the Valley’s arts and culture destinations along light rail, download the METRO Arts and Culture Ride Guide at metrolightrail.org.
