For Super Bowl LVII, Phoenix-area super bowl transportation systems broke service records to support the NFL’s goal of delivering fans to and from the game with safety and efficiency. From Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to Valley Metro, the system worked hard to handle a record number of people.
The region’s transit agencies also worked closely with the National Football League and organizers of the event to promote mass transit. They developed special services, schedules, fares, and maps to encourage the use of public transportation. The agencies also adapted bus operations and halted ongoing construction to prepare for the influx of visitors.
Many of the events surrounding Super Bowl Sunday are taking place in downtown Phoenix, making public transportation a great option. For those going to the game, Valley Metro is adding 11 more trains and extending light rail service to 2:00 AM from Feb 9-12. In addition, a dozen free park-and-ride lots and five overflow parking lots will provide easy access to the stadium.
Super Bowl 2024: Game Day Transportation Tips for Spectators and Fans
For riders who want to avoid the stadium crowds, Uber is establishing an additional rideshare pickup zone in the Home Depot parking lot on the south side of SoFi and providing Wi-Fi at this location and at its northern loading zone along Kareem Court. Enhanced fares will be in effect, including a $25 event surcharge for pickups after the game.
For the best experience, it’s recommended that passengers arrive at SoFi early to avoid long wait times. If you’re planning to ride back after the game, consider departing before the final whistle to beat a surge of fans looking for rides.
