Question about picking up bicycle from airport

Travel Forums Travel Gear Question about picking up bicycle from airport

Hello,

I plan on bringing a bicycle(in a box) on my flight and picking it up at the Sky Harbour Airport in Phoenix. I have a room rented already near Paradise Valley(about 15 miles away). I am wondering how I can bring this bicycle from the airport to Paradise Valley.

It's about 56 inches in length and weighs 35 pounds. Is there any public transport that allows you to bring a bike on with you? Would an uber allow it? The airline shuttle?

If you need any more details or have questions, ask me. I'm not sure when it comes to public transport and any help would be appreciated!

How are you imagining to be able to wrangle a bike box plus your backpack/luggage by yourself on public transportation? How can you imagine fitting a bike box into an Uber unless you can request a minivan or pick-up truck?

My guess is that you rent a minivan taxi at the airport and suck up the cost.

Cheers,
Terry

Can't ride it because it'd be a far ride, plus if my flight is delayed it'd be dark. I ended up shipping it and sucked up the cost. Just gotta wait an extra week, but it's not a big deal. Thanks for the replies!
