We took this short video of a Light Rail car crossing the Tempe Town Lake Bridge north bound on the 4th of July. The area is shown here in a pic from a little earlier in the day. Next year, I am sure the trains will be full of people heading to the 4th of July fireworks show at the lake. This year, as always, the place was packed and parking was a nightmare for many. While the trains sat at the 3rd / Mill stop, thousands of people walked by and many took advantage of having their first look inside of the cars. I noticed how well the a/c worked inside of the cars on such a warm day. Once the train left the stop for it’s journey past the Depot Cantina and over the lake, I watched several people that were very surprised to see the trains in action. It was kind of funny..
Large events like this will be a great way for people to easily access the area while using one of the eight park and ride stations. Mill Avenue throws some great parties and Light Rail will be a convenient way to get to and from the action while not having to walk so far from a good parking spot.

We will look in to some other options in the future. Thanks again for stopping by.
