If you are flying into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, you’ve got several options for getting from the airport to your destination. The area’s light rail system connects to the airport via the free PHX Sky Train service. In addition, taxis and pre-arranged car services are available. Hotel, rental, and car share companies like Avail also provide complimentary shuttle service from the airport’s transportation center to your accommodations or parking area.
