Less than nine miles northwest of ASU and Tempe’s downtown, Arcadia Place Condos is perfectly situated for convenience and hassle-free commuting. Because you’re traveling in the opposite direction of most commuters, driving to ASU is a quick 14 to 20 minutes. Although the west side of campus is technically closer to your condo, driving to the east side of ASU is usually faster. To get there, drive south on North 36th Street, then east on McDowell and south on North 44th Street to eastbound Loop 202. Take Exit 7 for Scottsdale/Rural roads and head south; you’ll see the campus to the west just beyond the river crossing.
While cycling to campus is manageable in 45 minutes, the terrain has challenging elevation climbs. If driving to campus isn’t your preference, your best bet is public transportation. The quickest transit route involves picking up eastbound Bus Route 41 at Indian School Road and North 36th Street. At Indian School and Scottsdale roads, you’ll transfer to Bus Route 72. You can disembark at several eastern campus locales, first near Packard Baseball Center and then near Whiteman Tennis Center. You can also hop off at the University Rural Light Rail Station just north of ASU’s Sky Space. The entire trip takes 53 minutes.
If you prefer light rail, you’ll pick up westbound Bus Route 41 and transfer to the light rail train at Central Light Rail Station. You have two ASU stops, one at Tempe Transportation Center near Sun Devil Stadium and Wells Fargo Arena and another at University Rural Light Rail Station. The full trip takes an hour and 13 minutes.
You have access to many restaurants and services near Arcadia Place Condos. Five to seven blocks north of the condos you’ll find Crudo, Zipps, Beckett’s Tables, Chicago Hamburger Company, BoSa Donuts, The Stand and Allstate Self-Storage. A mile-and-a-half northwest of the condos, you’ll also be able to shop for groceries at Sprout’s Farmers Market, grab a latte at Starbucks and gas up your vehicle at QuikTrip.
