=== I-10 West towards [[California]] ===
* '''Love's Travel Stop at in Buckeye'''
First you need to get to Desert Sky Transit Center. There are no direct buses from downtown Phoenix but you can take for example [ bus 3 Westbound] from Van Burren & Central Avenue and get off on Van Burren & 75th. Desert Sky is 2.5 miles to the north. From there [ bus 685] to Gila Bend/Ajo passes near Love's Truck Stop. It costs $4. If you take it seven stops from Desert Sky, you can hitchhike at the truck stop and there are many fast food places that may be good for soliciting rides. Bear in mind that there are only a few buses a day Monday to Friday (5.15 am, 9.55 am, 12.40 pm, 3.55 pm and 7 pm) and two on Saturday (11 am and 3 pm).
=== I-10 South and East towards [[Tucson]] and [[New Mexico]] ===
* '''Love's Travel Stop at in Chandler'''
From Phoenix take any bus or light rail going to Tempe Transportation Center. You'll be better off taking a bus as you can pay for one ride which is $2 and ask for a transfer slip and take another bus from Tempe without additional cost. There are no free transfers from light rail. Once in Tempe take [ bus 66 to Lone Butte Casino] which is the last stop. Walk towards Chevron gas station and turn right/west into Allison Road. Continue for a mile until you get to traffic lights and turn left/south. You will see large McDonald's sign. Once there at Exit 162, Love's Travel Stop is a new truck stop nearby and the highway on-ramp is large enough for a truck to stop. [[User:Salman|This hitchhiker]] has received several rides from here, from cars heading to the area of Casa Grande. Just past Casa Grande is the I-8/ I-10 junction, with several large truck stops. You should not accept any ride going a shorter distance than this. If you hold out, you may make it all the way to Tucson in one ride.
