4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttle takes all A&T students to different parts of the campus free of charge. The city bus the GTA (Greensboro Transit Authority) is a good transportation system for getting around in the city if you do not have a car. It is very inexpensive and transportation buses provide wifi connection

Transportation: Call a cab or catch the shuttle both are convenient

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation at our school is not to good. It needs to be more active and better hours. Also there needs to be more than one bus for each stop.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It's okay, however, it could come in reasonable timing. It is a little bit slow.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I'm told that the shuttle bus will actually drop you off in front of walmart and pick you back up to take you back to campus.

All NC A&T students can travel around the city of Greensboro for free via the Greensboro Transit Association (GTA) and Higher Education Area Transit (HEAT) buses by just showing their AggieOne Card. The HEAT routes serve A&T and the six other universities in Greensboro, and they also circle around downtown Greensboro, A&T, and UNCG every 30 minutes. The HEAT buses also run on Sundays, but at amended hours. The HEAT buses travel to some neighborhoods that are heavily populated by college students to take them to and from from the campus. The GTA system can be a little more frustrating to use due to requiring more transfers. The HEAT system is simpler and may only include one or two bus changes during the entire trip. Also, the GTA is also much slower than the HEAT system. Although the GTA buses run every 40 minutes during the week, they can be very late, especially during mid-afternoon. If you plan on riding the bus, it is important to learn the routes and pay attention to the destination signs. Lots of students utilize both the HEAT and GTA systems, but it is most convenient to have a car or a friend with a car.
