2 College Freshman

Transportation: If you need anything, you will need a car on campus. Having friends who have cars are the best idea. Walking anywhere is a bad idea.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation is alright but I don't often use it.

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: I live in Buffalo so it was very easy to get to school.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Canisius provides us with free NFTA passes, therefore the metro and bus is free during the school year.

All Canisius students are given a Metro Pass at the start of each year. A subway stop is extremely close to campus, right across from the Koessler Athletic Center (KAC). Additionally, Canisius is situated on Main Street, right in the middle of the city, which makes it an ideal starting point for any trip.

There is a bus stop on campus, and the Buffalo Niagara International Airport is only minutes away. And if someone needs to make a Wegmans run, they can rent an environmentally-friendly car through Buffalo CarShare (or make friends with a commuter). Buffalo CarShare offers students access to a car without upfront costs. Students just reserve cars as needed and pay per hour, with insurance and gas being included in the cost.
