Tempe Transit, Tempe, Arizona


Tempe, Arizona is an innovative and progressive city located in the Phoenix area. Tempe is home to Arizona State University (ASU)—one of the largest public college campuses in the United States—making the city a hub for both student and community activity.

Innovative transit solutions and bus stop amenities designed to serve that community have made Tempe Transit a leader in the industry. Investment in new products, technologies, and service improvements for its service area, which includes ASU sporting events, are helping the organization to streamline operations. Following an initial five-year agreement to supply solar lighting for their stops and zones, Tempe once again selected Urban Solar in 2017 to help increase amenities for transit bus stop locations.

About Tempe Transit

Tempe’s Transportation Division is responsible for the design of signage and pavement markings, as well as barricading and traffic control projects, maintaining streets, alleys, sidewalks, storm drains, traffic signals and street lights. It also provides bus, bike, pedestrian and light rail facilities. Tempe has bus service on most major streets, with 16 bus routes, three express routes, one free Flash route, and six free Orbit neighborhood circulator routes. Bus service in Tempe operates seven days a week.


Following a competitive request-for-proposals process in 2017, Tempe officials selected Urban Solar’s transit solar lighting models RMS 80, RMS 50 and PV-Stop to further enhance their transit amenities. These UL listed systems have helped Tempe to provide safe and reliable lighting for the area’s transit riders, even during the region’s extreme summer temperatures.
