In partnership with Valley Metro light rail, the Phoenix Suns Arena and the Phoenix Suns have established the “Rail Ride Event” program, which allows guests who purchase a ticket to an event at Phoenix Suns Arena to ride Valley Metro light rail at no additional cost, on the day of the event.
Through Rail Ride Event, Valley Metro will recognize Phoenix Suns Arena event tickets 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.
In addition to Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury games, the Phoenix Suns Arena hosts nearly 200 events each year, including concerts and family shows, with the venue’s longstanding partners Live Nation and Feld Entertainment. Tickets for every event at the arena, which attracts over two million visitors annually, will be valid for the Rail Ride Event program.
Two important things to know:
You are required to keep your event ticket on your person when riding light rail and must show your event ticket to a fare inspector upon request. Failure to show a valid event ticket can result in fines ranging from $50 to $500 dollars.
Phoenix Suns Arena event tickets are good for light rail only; they are not valid as bus fare.
No traffic, no parking hassles, no reason not to have a great time! Visit www.valleymetro.org for schedules and maps.
Construction on South Central Extension/Downtown Hub will lead to a schedule adjustment for light rail on February 13-26 and March 13-26. During each of those two-week periods, light rail trains throughout the entire system will arrive every 30 minutes, instead of every 15 minutes.
Some downtown stations will also be impacted by the single-tracking.
