Depending on weather and distance, Gannon students mostly walk, ride the E, or drive their own cars around the Erie area. In the downtown campus setting, Gannon students can usually find the things that they need within walking distance. Convenience stores, nightclubs, Hamot Medical Center, and everything in between are located within a few blocks of Gannon's campus. Public transportation is available for places a short drive away, like the Millcreek Mall and Tinseltown Movie Theater. The E, or Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority, is free with student ID. For campus commutes, a shuttle makes a loop around Gannon, which students find especially nice on rainy afternoons and cold winter mornings. Many students do not have a car on campus, but those who do are usually willing to drive other students to where they need to go. For evening and nighttime commutes, Gannon provides a safety escort service called G.U.E.S.T. (Gannon University Escort Service Team), so students don't have to walk around the urban area alone.
Live out of town and looking for long-distance transportation? Most students either share rides, take the Greyhound, or fly home. Many students know other students who live in the same area, and the Greyhound station and Erie International Airport are only a short drive away.
