Public transportation is very accessible on campus, as three shuttles run throughout the campus. They even take students to in-town destinations, such as Market Basket, Wal-Mart, and Fogg's. In addition, students can contact Campus Safety at any time if they feel unsafe, and the campus safety officers will transport them throughout the campus.

The in-town shuttle trips only occur once a day, so students encourage freshmen to get a copy of the shuttle schedule and plan their trips to various locations accordingly. The shuttle does not run during inclement weather, or when a snow emergency has been declared in advance by the school.
