Bypass traffic and avoid parking hassles by riding Valley Metro Rail to Chase Field for the D-backs home opener on Monday, April 4.

“The Arizona Diamondbacks appreciate Valley Metro Rail’s partnership and continued commitment to support our dedicated fan base,” said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall.  “With a light rail stop just outside the gates of Chase Field, fans have easy access to and from D-backs day and night games in downtown Phoenix.”

First pitch is at 6:40 p.m. Added event service will support higher ridership and game day attendance. Fans are asked to purchase fare in advance to avoid lines at station fare vending machines.  An All-Day pass is only $4.
