Phoenix Sky Harbor announces Sky Train opening
PHOENIX -- Travelers will soon have a new way to access Sky Harbor Airport.
The airport announced Thursday that its Sky Train, which provides access to Terminal Four from the light rail, is scheduled to open at noon on April 8.
"This is an exciting day for the city of Phoenix and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport," said Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton in a release.
The train, which is free of charge, serves the light rail stop at 44th Street and Washington and also the East Economy parking lot.
The Sky Train is scheduled to begin service at Terminal Three in early 2015 and then will continue on to the airport's rental car center.
About 80 percent of Sky Harbor passengers go through Terminal Four.
