Getting around the Phoenix area from your Central on Broadway apartment is easy since the development is conveniently located near Loop 101. The apartments are less than four miles east of ASU, and driving to the university campus takes a mere 10 minutes in light traffic. Even during peak morning rush hour, the drive takes a comfortable 10 to 16 minutes on surface streets. Parking on campus is available, but parking prices are steep.
Walking and bicycling to campus are more budget-friendly alternatives, and you’ll get a workout in the process. You can walk to the campus in about an hour and 10 minutes, walking most of the way along Broadway. Cycling is significantly faster, taking just 21 minutes when you bike west on Broadway and north on the Tempe Canal Trail and Price toward Apache Boulevard. Apache runs along the southern border of campus.
If you prefer a more passive and relaxing commute, try out Valley Metro’s extensive public transit system. Bus Route 45 is easy to access with a four-minute walk to the bus stop at Broadway and Valencia. Disembark the bus at College and Broadway, and walk 16 minutes to campus. As an alternative to the bus altogether, you can catch a light rail train at Main Street and Sycamore, which is a 19-minute walk from your apartment. The train is an 11-minute ride to the University and Rural Road station, on the central eastern edge of campus. You can ride another two minutes to go to the north area of campus to access sites like ASU’s Brickyard Engineering, Sun Devil Stadium and Plummer Aquatic Complex.
There are plenty of conveniences near Central on Broadway apartments. QuikTrip and Popeye’s are within a two-block radius; the post office is three blocks away, and Focus Climbing Center is just across the street. For groceries, you have several options. Safeway is less than a mile to the north; Fry’s Food is less than two miles to the northeast, and Walmart’s Grocery Pickup center is two miles to the east.
