|Mainly daily commuters, I assume. Needed to leave some yellow cards, though.|
- Light Rail
- Phoenix Bus (has bicycle carriers on the front often)
- Washington Street Bike Lane (straight shot downtown or Tempe)
- Canal (check your favorite bike route mapping app)
- Uber or Lyft (don't know what their bicycle carrying policy might be, though, but may be the best way if your origin or destination happens to be Scottsdale, since public transport from here to there is scarce)
- Car drop-off (for example in a kiss-and-ride scenario like mine)
The Sky Train appears to be used heavily by crew and airport workers. While I hung out here, I would estimate that twice as many people passing through the station were crew or employees. There were only a handful of passengers passing through on a weeknight. I didn't see anyone get on or off the two Phoenix city buses which came and went (a 1 and a 44).
|Nice bike lockers (bring your own lock). Could not find out about overnight or extended usage though. Leave a comment if you know about that.|
Only about half the lockers appeared to be occupied when I visited. This set near the full bike rack was full, but another set of four on the other end was nearly empty. Bring your own lock. And I wouldn't recommend flimsy combination padlocks like the ones being used in the photo, either.
Would you consider riding to a flight? Do nice facilities like this encourage that? I think I would feel better about the bike lockers, although, with a solid lock and good technique and an ugly bike, I think one would have a good survival of the fittest chance at the racks.
