3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is a shuttle to take student to campus. It is hard to get to the cheaper stores like Walmart and Albertsons without transportation. My advice would be to make friends with those few who have a car.

Students at BYU-Idaho could get away with never having a car or buying a bus pass. First, because there aren’t any busing systems, and second, because nearly everything is within walking distance. However, sometimes, walking just won’t cut it; having a roommate with a car or having a car yourself can be beneficial for trips to Idaho Falls or grocery shopping. Also, it’s a little difficult to get up the motivation to walk to the store in negative-degree weather. However, most housing complexes are close enough to school, and parking is incredibly limited to the point that it really doesn’t make sense to not walk or bike to class. The campus layout was designed for a walking campus, and many students do walk.

As for long-distance transportation, there is a shuttle service to the Salt Lake City Airport. And students often find rides from other students through the BYU-I bulletin board to get or offer rides back home after the semester ends to reduce driving costs. On another note, any traveling students have to do for a specific class (like a field trip) is done through school transportation. The school has a couple of vans available exclusively for class and school-related activity travel.
