The City of Wooster doesn’t have any public transportation, so students that are used to the convenience of a subway or the simplicity of a train, are in for a shock. However, the College has recently implemented a couple of programs that allow students to get around easier. Cars are available for rent at Security & Protective Services through the “Connect by Hertz” program. You are charged an hourly fee to use the vehicle, so this is a good option for students who just plan on a short shopping trip. Bikes are also available for free rental through the Community Bike Club which students take advantage of in nice weather.
Wooster is very easy to maneuver on foot; students can walk from campus to the heart of downtown in 20 to 30 minutes. But the best way to get around Wooster, especially if you want to go uptown, is to either have your own car or to borrow a friend’s. Luckily, students are usually more than willing to loan their car out or to take a break from studying to drive their hallmates to Walmart.
