The PHX Sky Train transports travelers at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The first line was opened in 2013, the second in 2014 and recently 2.5 miles were added, extending the line from Terminal 3 to the rental car center.
This $745 million dollar project is being paid for with rental car customer charges and airline passenger facility charges—no local tax dollars are being used.
The 24th Street Station, located south of Buckeye Road, makes it easier for travelers coming in from the West Valley and Downtown. Plus, 1,600 new parking spaces have been added with benefits like passenger curbside pickup and drop-off. By adding the extension, traffic on Sky Harbor Boulevard will lessen, making it easier to reach the terminals. When this segment of the line is open, it will eliminate rental car shuttle buses.
The PHX Sky Train is free to ride and operates 24 hours a day. There is a 100-foot tall bridge over Taxiway R. It is the first transit bridge in the world that is built over an active taxiway. Boeing 747 and Airbus A380 aircraft can easily pass under the bridge.
