Transportation on campus makes students stuck between a rock and a hard place. If they register vehicles on campus, it costs them between $300 and $400. But if they decide to forgo having a car completely, the public transportation options aren't much better.
Students can use the Mid Mon Valley Transit Authority (MMVTA) buses free of charge with a valid student ID. This bus service takes students to the lower campus area. However, that's about it for the transportation options. The only other University-sponsored options include holiday/break shuttles to the Pittsburgh International Airport, Pittsburgh Greyhound bus station, and Pittsburgh Amtrak train station.
