Sky Train opens to Sky Harbor travelers Monday

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

The public will get its first crack Monday at traveling on an automated inter-terminal train at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Passengers can begin riding the PHX Sky Train at noon Monday.

The driverless train will connect airport passengers between Terminal 4, the East Economy parking lot and the Metro light-rail station at 44th and Washington streets.

Trains will arrive and depart every three to four minutes and operate 24 hours a day and year-round at no charge.

Sky Train stations will have boarding pass kiosks, pet parks, and will allow anyone flying Southwest or US Airways to check their bags at the station for free.
 
Early bag check is also available at the East Economy station.

In addition, a cell-phone waiting lot will be available for people picking up travelers at the 44th Street Station.

It's the first phase of a $1.5 billion project.

Officials plan for the train to extend to Terminal 3 with a walkway to Terminal 2 by early 2015 and, in its final state, connect it to the airport's rental car center.

    Dance raves for kids at NYC's hot clubs

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
