4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There's a shuttle around campus and to UGates. Other than that people usually walk around campus or drive to anything off campus

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Really, there's just "The E". It's just a bus system that goes around campus, but if you live on campus, you will never have to take it, it's mainly for those who live at UGates (off campus apartments)

College Freshman

Transportation: I don't know alot about the transportation options at my school since I am able to have my car while at school. The parking fee is not expensive, and the advantages of having a car are large. Having a car enables you to travel to classes that are off campus, travel to stores to stock up on supplies, and to go home on breaks and holidays.

3 College Student

Transportation: I always see people using the taxis or the bus that travels all over Erie. Seems like they are very accessible to those in need.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have a system called the e-bus and it goes all over our city and has set times and places they will always be and it runs 24 hours a day. When you show your ID it is free to ride the bus. A lot of students here have cars.
