Rideshare Discount Offered to Taliesin West Visitors
Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation | Jan 29, 2018
Just in time for the busy tourism season, the City of Scottsdale has created an innovative, low-cost solution that will help travelers journey throughout the city with ease.
For the more than 100,000 visitors to Taliesin West each year, traveling to marvel at Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and desert laboratory has become easier, thanks to a new program by the City of Scottsdale.
Scottsdale has partnered with rideshare companies Uber, Lyft and SuperShuttle/ExecuCar to offer discounted rates to visiting travelers during a trial program. Starting this month, these rideshare companies will promote a Scottsdale-specific discount code to their customers. When visitors pay for their rideshare vehicles, they will use the provided code to reduce their fares on eligible trips between a Scottsdale hotel and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and trips within Scottsdale’s borders.
How it works
Rideshare companies like Uber, Lyft and SuperShuttle/ExecuCar will offer customers a Scottsdale-specific discount code that will be applied automatically when applicable.
When visitors pay for their ride-share trip, they will have the opportunity to use this discount code. The code will automatically be applied based on your location. Eligible trips include travel between two location’s within Scottsdale’s border.
“Visitors want to move easily throughout our community. With this new program, Scottsdale is rolling out the red carpet for them,” said Experience Scottsdale President & CEO Rachel Sacco. “Our hope is that when visitors return home, they look back fondly on their Scottsdale visit – including how easy it was to get to Scottsdale and explore the community.”
The program provides convenient, quick, and direct travel between Sky Harbor and Scottsdale. And by promoting point-to-point rideshare services, the program has the potential to alleviate parking issues in downtown Scottsdale and at major Scottsdale attractions.
