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
