Arizona Transportation

  • Phoenix-Sedona Shuttle

    Sedona Transportation

    I loved my ride with the Sedona Phoenix Shuttle. Rich was so friendly and a great driver. He introduced everyone to me. Some local and a few like me from out of town. I own a timeshare in South Africa and traded to Los Abrigados resort. The shuttle brought me up in two hrs and the rate was only $50.00 one way or $90.00 round trip. I learned from...

  • You need a car to get around

    Tucson Transportation

    If you're coming as a tourist: yes, you do need a car. The most popular sites in the city, such as the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Saguaro National Park, Sabino Canyon and Mount Lemmon are virtually inaccessible without a private car. Public transit just does not reach them. However, as a resident, it is very possible to navigate the city on the...

  • Buses

    Phoenix Transportation

    I guess the quality of mass transit in Phoenix is up to the individual. I used it for years, one can get around the city of Phoenix and the surrounding suburbs fairly easily, albeit, it is time-consuming. For an American city, the bus system isn't bad, but it's not like Europe, or even larger Canadian cities. Yes, it is limited in hours of...

    Grand Canyon Transportation

    I used Arizona Shuttle in November 2011 to transfer from Phoenix, via Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Village and then returned to Flagstaff. Pick-up at Grand Canyon Village is from Mawick Lodge. A return ticket from Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Village and back cost me US$56.00 - which I thought very reasonable.

    Grand Canyon National Park Transportation

    Grand CAnyon RR comes form and returns to Williams Arizona, about 60 miles south. It takes over 200,000 passengers to the park south rim only annually. It was one of the first rides into the park for original visitors, and the only way to get here, other than walk or long horse rides. It began in 1901, and continued until 1968, when closed due to...

  • Driving

    Sedona Transportation

    Driving through the town can take a long time for the one+ mile form north to intersection of Hwy 89A and 179 going south. It is a bottleneck, but does have a turnabout to help a bit. Then if you go further west on Hwy 89A, there many lights, people pulling off the road, and pulling on to it. Speed limit is 40MPH, so be careful. It takes about 15...

  • Driving in Tucson

    Tucson Transportation

    Driving around Tucson I must admit that I didn't have a lot of problems with finding a parking lot for my car. Surely it's not so easy to find a free parking in a downtown (there are parkometers with limited parking time at daytime in business days), but there are a lot of parkings around Tucson Convention Center. Look at my picture and follow the...

  • Getting around by car

    Phoenix Transportation

    Because of the huge area to cover in the Phoenix SMSA metro area, a vehicle is the best method of transport. The signs to find the rentals and return must be read carefully, though. They are off site from the airport, and shuttles needed to get to the 3 mile away destination

    Grand Canyon National Park Transportation

    Within the hugely overcrowded South Rim area around Grand Canyon Village, the National Park Service provides free shuttle buses that operate on three different routes. The service range is from Hermit's Rest on the west end all the way to Yaki Point on the east end. Most of the time these buses operate once every 15 minutes, but at times of lesser...

    The first leg of rail line is in place since about 2008, and it covers around 20 miles form the airport. It goes out to Mesa and the last drop off is at Sycamore St in Mesa, which is on Main St, and just east of Dobson Rd. A shuttle takes you to the rail line about 2 miles west of the airport. There are 28 stops and cost is $.75 one way, but you...

    In 1966, when my husband was transferred from the USNavy Post Graduate School in Monterey CA to Key West Florida, we had two children and three cars. We shipped one car from San Francisco to Miami by rail, and then drove the other two cars. My husband drove the 1932 Plymouth (pictured) and I drove our 1963 VW bus.

    Grand Canyon National Park Transportation

    I love hiking and to me between my legs and the great shuttle bus service at the Grand Canyon, you almost don't need a car. But to get to great secluded spots for sunset and getting to the park, you need a car. We were on a six month trip around the US so a car was really our only option. Just getting to the Grand Canyon from Sedona was a four...

    Grand Canyon Transportation

    It’s impossible to feel the imposing size of the Grand Canyon, and the strength of nature carving it, without a flight over the place. You may take a short flight from Las Vegas but I preferred a different solution: since the prices in Las Vegas hotels raise a lot in weekends, I took an overnight flight on Friday, and with two nights sleeping in...

    That's what they call the mules that take visitors to the canyon floor and back. Canyon mules are specially raised for the purpose of taking guests on this trip.
