The city has recently been recognized as one of the top 20 in \America's Thriving Cities\ and has been honored by Google as Arizona's \eCity.\
Most people in Scottsdale get around the city by car. There isn't an extensive public transportation system, though there are city busses that service many parts of Scottsdale. The busses only run during the day, however, so you'll want to have be sure to be home before dark or plan on cabbing it home if you're hoping to take advantage of the happening nightlife scene downtown. If you're sticking close to downtown, there is also a free \trolley,\ which is actually a bus shaped like a trolley.
