Pick a Parts Mesa
The Valley Metro Rail Adventure
Mesa has the Valley Metro Rail, so what's it good for? At first, you might not think much, because it may not go anywhere near to where you work. But there are some very interesting things you can do on the metro light rail.
You can park your car for the day at one of the many park-and-ride lots of the Metro. These are for day use only. Here's a list of the locations of the free Metro park-and-ride lots:
Like trains? The Phoenix Metro Light Rail (or Metro for short) is a convenient passenger train that goes from Mesa to some of the main parts of Phoenix and Tempe. Check out the view as you travel in comfort across the Tempe Town Lake:
It is comfortable, modern and moves along at a good speed similar to regular traffic. Seats are basic cloth covered and there is room for things like strollers and even bicycles!
Wheelchairs are no problem because the level of the landing and train looked good, and the gap was very small. Also there are places for wheelchairs. The Metro is smooth as glass; you will notice this is not some crazy swaying, jerking, smoky bus.
Take a day-long joy ride on the Valley Metro Light Rail
The Valley Metro Rail is a fun thing to do with friends and relatives when they come to town and want to see what some parts of area look like. You will see major Tempe and Phoenix attractions, mixed in with a few bland commercial areas.
Start your trip at the ample free park and ride lots. The park and ride lots are for day use only, no overnight parking. In Mesa, the most eastern part of the line (for now) is at Sycamore and Main (near Dobson and Main). You will get the best pick of seats here. Why? Because the closer you get to Tempe and Phoenix, the riders increase to standing room only:
The train moves at a fast speed and will get where you want to go quickly. It is nice and new. So far there is no graffiti. You can get from Mesa to the other end in Phoenix in about an hour and 15 minutes on a busy weekend.
