Arizona State University is situated in Tempe, Arizona. Tempe is somewhere where the public transport is not as strong as some other cities. Students who do not drive can have trouble going one place to another. Below are few ways to travel which may be helpful to ASU student.
1) Valley Metro rail
The Valley Metro Rail is something which is used by most of the students. For those who travel from Tempe to some other city regularly, The Daily pass or the U-Pass is very useful. All these rails are completely supported by Wifi so you can also complete your work while traveling from one place to another.
2) Valley Metro bus
The Valley Metro Bus is launched by the same company which launched the Valley Metro Rail. These buses are very easy and have the same type of passes like the Valley Metro Rail. Those who like to travel through the bus, this can be a very nice option to use. These buses are very much supported by free Wifi so you can also do your work while traveling.
3) Orbit bus
Orbit Bus is a mode of transportation which can take you to any place in Tempe for free of cost. Travelling in Orbit in Tempe is completely free. You can track the route of the Orbit through Google Maps and can use the service as many times you want. If you want to travel internally in Tempe, Orbit is the best option you can have.
4) Intercampus shuttles
The Intercampus shuttles are also a nice initiative by Arizona State University. ASU has its 5 campuses around Arizona and you can go to any of them with the free transport service: the intercampus shuttles. You can track its time and route from the ASU website and use them. If used wisely, it is incredibly useful.
5) Escort Service after 7
ASU has an escort service especially for the students who have classes late at night and those who are roaming around on-campus until late night and want to go back to their dorm. To use this service, you just need to call the Escort service through your phone and they will take you back wherever you want.
