parking, transportation and getting around.
The Downtown Phoenix Ambassadors are your number one resource for transportation, parking and events. Just call the information hotline at 602-495-1500, use the Live Chat function at dtphx.org or look for an Ambassador wearing a bright orange shirt with “Ask Me” on the back.
To make the most of your experience, get to the Championship Campus early and plan in advance. It’s easy getting to, from and around downtown with Valley Metro light rail, buses and Grid Bike Share. There will even be a FREE shuttle on Saturday and Sunday, bringing fans from across the Valley to and from the Championship Campus.
