3 College Senior

Transportation: It has buses to get students around.

3 College Student

Transportation: While Appalcart is not the cleanest, there are many buses that travel most of the needed routes, always providing students with a way to get to class.

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Free Applecart system that runs all over campus and off campus, all the time. Very helpful and easy to access from so many places. Boone is small, so cost is not that bad for driving. A lot of places you live it's easy to just walk to class! Even when I lived far away I didn't feel it was bad. If you can park on campus, even better. Then you can just walk everywhere.
