Tucson is a city in Arizona.

Hitchhiking out

You don't wanna be caught in the monsoon rain unexpectedly

East towards New Mexico (I-10)

  • Pilot Travel Center in Littletown

First get to Laos Transit Center. From there take bus 26 to Triple T/Pilot Travel Center. It costs $2. The onramp has plenty of space to pull over. It's good to make a sign saying Benson, where you can find another good truck stop, just to get out of Tucson.

North towards Phoenix (I-10) and West towards San Diego (I-8)

Take the bus ($1.00) to downtown Tucson then, or if you're already near by, walk to speedway and head west to I-10. it should be rather easy to find. This ramp attracts most people from the east, west and central parts of town. Construction of the four lane finished recently, but it hasn't eased congestion. All exiting and merging traffic is diverted to the frontage roads, so you might want to try your luck there on the corner. There is a Circle K right at this ramp, so you can get courtesy cups of water if you are waiting for long.

South towards Nogales (I-19)

Walk to where the I-10 and I-19 intersect; there is a great spot with lots of room to pull over, and multiple cops passed by and didn't harass me. Make sure to get a ride at least out of Tucson city limits, as this may well be the only on-ramp out of the city where there is space to pull over. (June 2013) trash:Tucson
