3 College Freshman

Transportation: Doesn't go many place downtown

5 College Junior

Transportation: Wonderful, really appreciate the bus services w/ off site housing

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our school gives free transportation when students and staff present a MavCard to the driver. Many people commute to and from town using the bus system and it is very convenient to them because it is free and the shuttles are frequent.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I wouldn't know anything about taxi costs but the campus shuttle and public buses are free. College students ride the buses free with their mavcard. The buses and shuttles are great. The bus stops at pretty much any place a student could need to go.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It's hard to catch a campus bus or shuttle at times, but if you absolutely need to find a ride, you can always call security and ask to see if there is a shuttle or bus coming your way anytime soon.
