The nearest airport to the workshop is Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). If you are staying at the GEC-24 hotel (Moxy Tempe): when you arrive at the airport, please call the hotel (480-968-3451). They will send a personalized Uber taxi to pick your party up, at the hotel's expense.
Public transportation is also available from the PHX airport to Tempe. You can catch the lightrail for $2.00 (one ride). There are three lightrail stops very close to ASU campus:
- Mill Ave & 3rd St
- Veterans Way & College Ave (closer to CAVC building)
- University Dr & Rural Rd (closer to ISTB4 building)
For more information visit the Phoenix Metro Light Rail website.
Transportation around the ASU campus
All the buildings are within walking distance (a 30-min walk should be enough to cross the entire campus). However there are also free buses available if you wish to use them.
If you are also staying in the MOXY Tempe hotel for the GEC24 conference, you can take the FLASH FORWARD bus (clockwise route) to get to the CAVC building. During spring break this route is offered in a limited schedule (from 7am to 6pm, every 10-20 minutes). Please refer to the figure below for the bus route, or also refer to this interactive map
The orbit buses are also free and can be used for transportation around Campus. More information about routes and schedules of orbit buses can be found here (Valley Metro website, look for the "Tempe - orbit" buses).
The Tempe Transit Center lies just north of the CAVC building. From there you can take all the Orbit buses, the light rail and also the regular paid Valley Metro buses. There is a trip planner and information about fares in the Valley Metro website.
If you are driving to the event, there are parking lots close to the CAVC as shown in the picture below:
