So, you are heading to the dance? What better way to get to US Airways Center than to hop on the light rail and have them take you there, for FREE? Yep, I’m freakin’ serious. All events at the US Airways Center qualify as FREE Rail Ride events.
“Through The Rail Ride Event, METRO will recognize any US Airways Center event ticket as valid light rail fare on the day of the event, for four hours prior to the start of the event, through the end of the transit day.”
Of course, you will want to know about some great places to hang out before and after the game, right? Our handy little “light rail drinks” map might give you a few ideas of where to hang out along the line.
Enjoy the games and don’t forget about the sweet offer from METRO and US Airways to let you ride for free with your paid ticket to any event at the arena. Heck, it can be a real money saver. You park for free, ride for free, it even makes a $10.00 beer at the game taste just a little bit better.
Um, one more thing… If you don’t have a ticket for the games and are not going to the arena, you don’t ride for free. The good news? It’s still a deal. An all day light rail pass will only cost most of you $3.50.
So, catch all of the action for the West Regional games during the 2012 NCAA Tournament in Phoenix. I am willing to BET you will have a GREAT time, “Rockin’ the Rail Life!”

Remember, the light rail line is “split” in Downtown Phoenix. You have different East and West bound stops for Us Airways Center. 3rd and Jefferson and 3rd and Washington are good places to get on and off for the arena.
