Rail Ride


In partnership with Valley Metro light rail, Footprint Center and the Phoenix Suns have established the “Rail Ride Event” program, which allows guests who purchase a ticket to an event at Footprint Center to ride Valley Metro light rail at no additional cost, on the day of the event.

Through Rail Ride Event, Valley Metro will recognize Footprint Center 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 Footprint Center 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.
  • Footprint Center 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.
