      PHX Car Rental transfers, eating and shopping.

      Phoenix Dec 28, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      i am flying out of Phoenix which is an airport I've not been through previously. Can anyone advise ease of transfer from dropping off (Alamo) car hire and navigating through to Departures Terminal 3? I think it may involve a shuttle - if so how regularly do they run (6:30 - 7:30 am. Travelling alone so no one to share luggage humping with. Potentially I could check in car the night previous and use an airport hotel (would need transfer for that though?) but hoping that traffic will be reasonable at that hour in the morning on a Wednesday even if I had to navigate short stretch of I10 over Salt River? Also too early for breakfast at hotel so any suggestions in Terminal? Guessing that the shopping will be the usual gift oriented and duty free goodies - or should I save back some dollars - wishful thinking that I'll have any!

      A days road trip - Tucson to Phoenix?

      Arizona Dec 25, 2016 at 11:24 AM

      I have one day to spend heading back to Phoenix for my flight the following day. Rather than head straight up interstate I had thought about a detour to take in the Salt River area - would really like to get a view of the wild horses there if the chance arose. Could do with final night accommodation within an hour of PHX. Any suggestions for route and places to stay would be welcome. Please bear in mind that I am travelling solo so need to be a little aware of safety. Thanks everyone.

      Any suggestions for long stay condos in Tempe area?????

      by cdnagent Online Now Apr 11, 2009 at 10:49 AM

      Hello forum,

      I was wondering if anyone would have any good ideas as to where I can get some recommended condos for a couple of months starting in January. I have no clue as to how much one would count of spending per month, and what the availability would be.

      Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

      Kindly
      Jim

    • HI. I'M NEW HERE.

      by Jammie1955 Online Now Dec 18, 2005 at 2:30 PM

      Hi all. I just found this site today and was wondering if anyone can help me. We're planning our first trip to Az. and are interested in the Tempe area. We'd like to be there for a few days the end of January. I live in So Dak and it's COLD here. LOL We chose Tempe mainly because it appears to be near the zoo and botanical gardens and seems to be out of the heavy traffic of Phoenix itself. Also, we understand they have bicycle trails that pretty much run throughout the city. What is the transit system like there? Also, if it isn't good enough for one to get around and you need to rent a car, what is the traffic like there? Keep in mind that I come from a state with a total population of about 700,000 people. LOL

    • ASU student bus pass

      by cragunr Online Now Feb 6, 2005 at 6:15 PM

      I am looking to move to Tempe this year to be with my girlfriend. Does anyone know if ASU, Mesa Community College, or any of the other community colleges near Tempe give their students free (or discounted) bus passes? What is the public transportation system called there? Thanks for any help!
