If you don't have a car on campus, you should make friends with someone that does! There is no public transportation, and everything is about 30 minutes away. Luckily, the College sponsors shopping trips and airport shuttles, which are immensely helpful. But transportation remains a problem for people without cars.
While there aren't any subways or vast bus systems, there are a few other transportation options for Hiram students, including PARTA Dial-A-Ride for destinations around Portage County; this service leaves from Hiram on Mondays and Wednesdays, and it's $4 each way. For Dial-A-Ride, trips need to be scheduled by 4 p.m. the day before the trip.
