, the city of Tempe's transportation program, offers bus, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities to encourage residents to "get around Tempe in anything but a car." Bus service
is provided through Valley Metro
. Most local and regional buses run Mon-Sat from 5am-1am and Sun from 5am-10pm, with rush-hour service every 15 minutes Mon-Fri from 6am-9am and 3pm-6pm. Tempe also has four FLASH
routes connecting downtown Tempe, Tempe Town Lake, and Arizona State University. Currently under construction, the Tempe Transportation Center
will include a three-story, 40,000-square foot building, an exterior shaded courtyard, and a transit plaza serving the new Metro Light Rail and local and regional bus patrons. Facilities will also include a 2,000-square foot conference and community room, retail, transit store, security office, and Bike Station (a secure, interior bicycle storage facility with bike repair services, shower facilities, and bicycle accessories), as well as city transportation offices, and for-lease office space. The environmentally-friendly facility will be submitted for LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
