Transportation at EKU is very affordable. If you want to go anywhere on campus, just jump on a campus shuttle: it’s free. Although many students don’t use this service because they are unsure of the schedule or how to call it, all the information is available on EKU’s Web site and it’s really easy to do. Keep the shuttle number in your phone, and you can call anytime you need a ride during the evening shuttle hours. If you want to go off campus, the public bus is can take you to places like Wal-Mart, restaurants, or shopping destinations. The bus schedule can also be found on EKU’s Web site. Normally students do not take the public bus, but it is very easy and affordable; it costs around $1. If you don’t like buses, cabs are another option. A lot of students use cabs, especially to go out at night. The price varies based on company but is affordable. The base fee is about $5, and the fee increases per mile traveled.
Transportation for long distance travel is a little trickier. There is an airport located in Lexington, but the best option is to drive or have a friend drive you. There is also a Greyhound bus station in Berea, which is only a quick 15- to 20-minute drive. Basically, local transportation is easy with options like walking, shuttles, buses, or cabs. However, long distance travel requires a little bit more investigation and planning.
