Watch this video for a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the Valley Metro lightrail system.
Want to travel like a true Phoenician? Try the Valley Metro Lightrail! It’s an alternative to ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft that costs less money and causes less environmental damage.
The first full trip of the day starts at 4:40 a.m. and the last train stops at 2 a.m. This large time window allows passengers to depend on the lightrail to get to work and get home, as well as travel around Phoenix on the weekend. Trains leave approximately every 12 minutes.
