Rail Ride

Talking Stick Resort ArenaValley Metro and Talking Stick Resort Arena have teamed up to bring light rail riders an amazing deal:  Rail Ride.

When you buy a ticket to a concert, event or basketball game at Talking Stick Resort Arena, your light rail ride is included at no additional cost.  Event tickets are valid light rail fare for the day of the event only, for the period four hours prior to the event until the end of the transit day.

This program is applicable to any ticketed Talking Stick Resort Arena event.  Your ticket, including print‑at‑home, mobile or season tickets, or proof of ticket purchase must be in your possession when traveling on light rail. Events that do not use Talking Stick Resort Arena/Ticketmaster ticketing are not eligible. 

Two important things to know:

  • You are required to keep your event ticket or proof of ticket purchase on your person when riding light rail and must show your event ticket or proof of ticket purchase to a fare inspector upon request. Failure to show a valid event ticket or proof of ticket purchase can result in fines ranging from $50 to $500 dollars.
  • Talking Stick Resort 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!

Note: Valley Metro does not have an agreement with Chase Field, Comerica Theatre or other entertainment venues other than Talking Stick Resort Arena at this time. We continue to explore opportunities for future partnerships.
