Transit Options

The Brickyard Orchid House is located south of two Valley Metro light rail stops, Mill Ave/3rd Street (located NW of DCDC) and Veterans Way/College (located NE from DCDC). The Tempe Transportation Center is also located at Veterans Way and College and offers light rail, bus, and shuttle transportation. For those coming from ASU’s other campuses, there is an additional option to take the FREE intercampus shuttle that leaves every half hour.


Visitor parking is available in the Tempe Brickyard Garage (directly below us), easily accessible north of 7th Street at Myrtle. The rate is $1.50 per half hour/maximum of $12 per day. If the garage is full, surface parking is available at meters throughout the area, or other garages in the area. The two closest lots are Centerpoint Parking Garage on University Drive and Ash, or the ASU Fulton Center Parking on 7th Street and College. They are about a 5-10 minute walk and parking rates vary. Please allow yourself plenty of time to get here. Traffic and parking can be challenging in downtown Tempe.
