7 Great Ways to Get Around Scottsdale

By local contributor
JoAnne Zeterberg

In Scottsdale, transportation is more than just a way to get from here to there – it’s an experience in itself! Here are seven fun ways to get around town.

Try Ride Share

Scottsdale Rideshare

Scottsdale has partnered with ride-share companies Lyft, Uber and SuperShuttle/ExecuCar to offer discounted rates to visiting travelers through June 2018. These companies will promote a Scottsdale-specific discount code* to their customers with a non-metropolitan Phoenix address. When visitors pay for their ride-share vehicles, they can use the provided code to deduct up to $10 each on a maximum of two eligible trips between a Scottsdale hotel and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, or trips within Scottsdale’s borders, such as from a hotel to a restaurant or local attraction.

*Applicable to non-Phoenix metro residents between Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and any Scottsdale hotel (to or from), or between any two destinations within Scottsdale city boundaries. Program covers up to $10 for a ride up to two times per user.


Year-Round Service in Scottsdale

Uber, Lyft and SuperShuttle/Execucar provide round-the-clock service in Scottsdale. Get the apps, then click, pay and go!

Take the Trolley

For a retro way to explore, hop aboard the free Old Town Trolley. The trolley runs daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. with stops throughout Old Town.


Try Bike Share

LimeBike (bright green and yellow cruisers) is now available in Old Town Scottsdale! LimeBike costs $1 per half-hour or 50 cents for students. Get the app and ride “green” anytime!  For questions or support, call or text: 888-546-3345.

Ofo  (yellow bikes) also has hit the streets of Old Town Scottsdale and costs $1 per hour. Download the app and enjoy the ride!  For questions or support, email: support@ofobike.com.


Flag Down a Golf Cart

Street-legal golf-cart taxis are a fun way to get around Old Town, especially on busy weekend nights. But not all cart services are created equal! JoyRidesAZ offers more than just a fun way to get from place to place – their expertly trained staff also offers guided Old Town, culinary and historic tours.


Rent an E-Bike

As in, electric bike! Pedego rents battery-powered bikes that let you do as much – or as little – pedaling as you’d like.


Go Luxe with Go Rentals

Drive in style with a luxury ride from Go Rentals. Tesla, Ferrari, Porsche and Audi are just a few of the brands you can choose from.


Rev it Up, Easy Rider

Prefer two wheels to four? Rent a Fat Boy, Indian Scout, Polaris Slingshot or other dream bike from AZ RIDE Motorcycle Rentals.
