Transportation: we have a bus to walmart and the mall every saturday

College Junior

Transportation: I have never used the transportation that the school provides.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Transportation is easy, and affordable. Most the time, students ride with friends who have cars. Cars help with getting other kind of necessities, or even getting materials for a birthday party for example.Other then that, some students walk.

Owning a car on campus is pointless for underclassmen since the students are not allowed to drive anywhere. Students who want to go to the mall or downtown have to find an upperclassman with a car or otherwise catch a local bus. Conveniently, the Greenlink bus stop is right behind campus, and it costs $1.75 one way. BJU provides a campus shuttle every Saturday to the mall and Wal-Mart. The bus runs hourly, and a round-trip costs only $2. The bus is very old and loud, so students call the bus a “shame train.” Many grocery stores, thrift stores, and restaurants are located within walking distance, which reduces students' complaints. However, in the winter, awful Greenville weather challenges carless students desperate to leave campus.

Long-distance transportation is available and very convenient. Both a bus station and a train station are located in downtown Greenville, and the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) is about 30 minutes away from the school. For Thanksgiving, Christmas, and summer breaks, BJU provides a shuttle bus service to GSP.
