Come Fly With Me

Phoenix, the nation's 5th most populous city, is undertaking a $1-billion people-mover project to shuttle Sky Harbor International Airport employees and visitors in air-conditioned comfort. The initial $625-million, 1.92-mile-long segment of the elevated PHX Sky Train will connect METRO's light-rail station at 44th and Washington streets with the Airport's 4,630-space economy parking lot east and 88-gate Terminal 4, which serves 80% of Sky Harbor's passengers. The project is being underwritten by pay-as-you-go project financing through airline fees, passenger surcharges, and airport revenue, with some funds coming from 20-year general aviation bonds.
