4 College Student

Transportation: I have a car and live in the dorm so don't really have a lot to say

5 College Junior

Transportation: Free campus shuttle. Taxi is quite expensive.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: It is really great because the campus has a couple stream line buses that leave from the college and go around to designated points around town that college students usually need to get to. The cost is free with tuition.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Campus is small so walking leisurely across it in about 15 minutes is not a problem but a bike is a great thing to have for going off campus (but not necessary). The local bus for Bozeman centers on students so its stops are very convenient and it is the best price, free! If you don't have a car there are free buses that go to the ski area in the winter and the taxi company is fairly cheap if you need a ride to the airport although the college provides a shuttle to the airport for winter break. No need to have a car except for some extra convenience and having to get it ready for winter driving.

4 College Senior

Transportation: They help fund local transportation.

The majority of Bozeman seems to be content with letting everyone drive a giant SUV and putting minimal funding into alternative modes of transportation. A Greyhound bus station on Main Street gives the car-challenged students a chance to escape Bozeman for the weekend. Sadly, the bus ride usually takes so long that students end up spending the majority of their weekend staring out the window at the landscape.

Apart from buses and public transportation, Bozeman has an adequate airport. The Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) provides a year-round gateway to two Yellowstone National Park entrances.
