Transportation: I for one commute to school, park, then walk to each class that I have during the day. The most convenient means of traveling I have encountered would honestly have to be a bike or a skateboard/long-board. As for shuttle buses I am not very familiar with their convenience / time schedule/ location, however, I do see them frequently traveling from place to place multiple times throughout the day. As for cost goes I am not sure if it's included within the tuition rate or if a fee is required every trip. Like I said having a skateboard or bike would be perfect for campus.

Transportation: There is the option for buses and the tri rail train that you can go to directly as provided by the school since the school has bus stops. Its a lot easier that commuting every day but transportation such as taxis are non applicable. The bus and train is pretty low cost and you save so much money on gas.

Transportation: There's no shuttle to take you around Boca Raton. Although they have city buses that take you to and from certain places, the need for a car is a must. However, everything is somewhat close together so there's always the option of bikes.

Transportation: There is one public bus that drives through campus but there should be more because you have to wait about 2 hours for it to show up.

If you're planning on heading off campus often, a car is a must-have. The local bus does make stops throughout campus, but it's not too reliable or consistent. The Tri-Rail station is close by, but you have to either get a ride or catch the bus to get there. If none of these are possibilities, then your best bet is to catch a ride with a friend.
