4 College Freshman

Transportation: Cab drivers can be annoying, and overfill cars at night.

4 College Junior

Transportation: It is not expensive to get around at Marist. There is a shuttle that takes you back and forth from the mall, which costs five dollars. Also taxis cost $3, which is extremely cheap. The train is the normal price, using AmTrack or the MetroNorth which is pretty expensive, but if you have to get to the city, it's what you have to do.

4 College Student

Transportation: There are regular shuttles that carry students around the city to various popular areas such as the mall, train station, shopping centers, and other popular destinations. The bus system is also frequently used and there are many students a who bring their cars to campus as well. If there are no other modes of transportation, there are many close retail shops and food stores close by within walking distance.

2 College Student

Transportation: You need a car to do anything off campus but there are taxis that everybody uses when we go out. Taxis get expensive though.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are lots of cabs and that is basically how everyone goes places.
