Traveling the 12 miles from The Village at Lindsay Park to ASU’s Tempe campus is convenient, whether your mode of transport is car, bus or train. The apartments are southeast of the university, and you’re closest to ASU’s southeastern residence halls, Armstrong Hall and the law library. You can make the drive to campus in less than 20 minutes using the Superstition Freeway and Price Freeway/Loop 101. The route can get very congested during morning and evening rush hours, potentially increasing the commute time to 35 to 40 minutes.
To avoid traffic hassles and the high cost of on-campus parking, public transit is a superb alternative. Most public transit routes take about an hour each way, and you can catch the bus about a half-mile away from the apartments at Southern Avenue and Robin Lane. If you’re going to the east side of campus, you’ll board the westbound Route 61 bus to Rural Road and Southern, where you’ll transfer to a Route 72 bus. If your destination is west campus, you’ll hop on a Route 61 bus to Mill and Southern and transfer to a Route 65 bus.
If you prefer the region’s light rail system, you can either ride the bus to the nearest station or drive or bike to the station. The Mesa Drive/Main Street light rail station is less than five miles from the apartments, and parking is available. The train ride to campus is 22 to 25 minutes. Trains stop near Skyspace, the psychology building and Noble Science Library before continuing on to stop near Sun Devil Stadium and Wells Fargo Arena.
The Village at Lindsay Park apartments are next to Harmony Park’s shaded picnic areas, playground and lighted paths along Sun Circle canal trail. There are also a number of stores and restaurants east of the apartments, including Panera Bread, RA Sushi Bar, A.J.’s Fine Foods and others in Village Square at Dana Park. Trader Joe’s, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Wells Fargo Bank and Starbucks are a few blocks to the southwest.
