How to Get Around Mesa

Now that we’ve covered what to see and do, let’s discuss how to experience Mesa.

Fortunately, a personal charter bus with Mesa Party Bus Company provides mobility and flexibility for you and your entourage.

Public Transportation

Mesa’s public transit system consists of bus routes operated by Valley Metro. While the buses may be sufficient for individuals running errands around downtown, groups will find coordinating transfers and schedules extremely limiting. Valley Metro has no centralized stations, trip planning falls entirely on the rider’s shoulders.Last but not least, all travel routes stop running at night,meaning you’ll need backup transportation if you plan on brewery hopping or catching an evening event at the Mesa Arts Center.

Taxis & Rideshares

However, sizable groups will likely need to split across multiple vehicles which can detract from the cohesive travel experience.
