Proximity to the Superstition Freeway, Interstate 10 and important local institutions like ASU make living at Dobson Bay Club extremely convenient. If you commute to the university, driving the six-and-a-half miles to campus can be a quick 12-minute trek. During morning and evening rush hours, that commute can extend to 24 minutes. You can travel west on the Superstition Freeway and north on Rural Road, west on Baseline and north on Rural Road or north on Price/Loop 101 and west on Apache Boulevard. All three routes take about the same amount of time.
Cycling and riding public transportation are excellent alternatives to driving to ASU. Riding your bike to campus takes between 35 and 40 minutes. Most cycling routes involve several road changes. Varying your route to avoid traffic and use better bike lanes can make your ride more pleasant.
Valley Metro’s buses and light rail trains offer a variety of transit options. The quickest trip uses a bus/train combination. First, you’ll catch a northbound bus on Route 104 by walking a third of a mile to the bus stop at Alma School and Baseline roads. After a 15-minute bus ride, you’ll transfer to a westbound train at Main Street and Alma School Road. In 14 minutes, the train reaches the first ASU-area stop at University Drive and Rural Road. Here, you’re close to Campus Children’s Center and the Biodesign Institute. For north-area ASU buildings, continue on to the station at Veteran’s Way and College Avenue. Here, you’re steps from Sun Devil Stadium.
At Dobson Bay Club, you’re just six blocks west of Fry’s Food and Drug, Culver’s burgers, Streets of New York pizza and The Home Depot. The Fiesta Mall is seven blocks north along Alma School Road, filled with shops and restaurants such as Best Buy, Dillard’s Clearance Center and Auntie Anne’s Pretzels. Chase Bank is a couple of blocks east, and Wells Fargo and Bank of America are near Fiesta Mall.
