I have a friend who wants to move to Tucson. His declining vision prevents him from driving much and he expects to be relying on public transportation more in the coming years. So, he's looking for a place to live with access.

He likes the idea of the east side (excellent price range, newer construction, great shopping) and after touring Civano recently, was wondering what that community is like.

Can anyone offer personal experience on what the Civano area has to offer and how accessible it is for public transportation?

Thanks!

Civano began as a New Urbanist community with a lot of great ideas with the main driving force being surging housing prices and being surrounded by development. Neither happened. Eventually it was bought out by Pulte and built out haphazardly under the Civano name but with none of the ideals.

There is no public transit to Civano. The closest is at Rita Ranch, roughly three miles to the west, and that is an express bus (if they're even still running it), which only runs weekdays.

If you have to rely on public transit, it's really better to live either in the UA or Downtown area. Living closer to work is better though.
