Walk-only zones

Motorized devices — Tempe campus

Motorized vehicles or devices may not be brought into any ASU building — this excludes mobility devices for individuals with disabilities.

Walk-only zones make your campus trips safer.

Walk-only zones, a service of ASU Parking and Transit Services, enhance pedestrian safety and ease vehicle congestion on the Tempe campus during peak foot-traffic times. 

Currently, Walk-only zones cover the high pedestrian-traffic areas on the Tempe campus only. No tuition funds are used for Walk-only zones infrastructure or support staff. 

Learn more about bicycle registration and storage.
