3 College Junior

Transportation: The transportation isn't bad but it isn't amazing either. The Heat buses don't always run on time and it takes awhile to get where your going.

Transportation: I love the transportation at my school because if it gets too cool, hot or even if it raining, they will be at a stop on campus every ten minutes or less. They even have a shuttle for students who stay in the off campus apartments that don't have a car, which was poo ne of the best decisions that they could have done. One of there shuttle's take the students to the depot where the city buses are located for students that have to go other places around the city.

Transportation: havent traveled much out side of a car but the train ride I took wasnt bad.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The campus shuttle is everywhere and a lot of people use it to get the class so assume it runs on schedule and I never heard of anyone complain about it. I know they pick up like every 10min or so. So you can def catch it if you want. I usually just walk to class since the campus isn't that difficult to walk. The HEAT bus which takes people off campus to various locations is very inconvenient and slow. Do not take it unless you have to.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Using my Aggie One Card I was able to get around the area on GTA and Heat for free.

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.
