Having access to fast, affordable, and easily accessible public transportation is becoming increasingly popular option for these young professionals. Cities like Scottsdale and San Francisco have drawn in quite a crowd due to the low transportation costs. Tempe offers numerous jobs accessible by a 30-min transit ride, making it a recent hot spot.
