Transportation: Public transportation is great at PSU, just lately it got little pricey.

Transportation: PARKING IS EXPENSIVE, i only have class two days/week and the parking pass or even buying a max pass is more expensive than just buying it per each needed day. I drive about 20min to school and park up a hill and dont pay for parking and walk down it and hike back up. Its a good workout.

Transportation: Getting around Portland is pretty easy! There's sooo many ways to get to places. Buses, Light rails, taxis, zipcars, etc. I've used the bus once and it was pretty simple. I use the light rails A LOT and before PSU I never used public transportation but I think it's pretty easy to figure out. You just look at the maps and times and it's extremely simple to know how to get to where you're going. I use it to get to the airport a lot when I fly back home and it's cheaper than a taxi would cost :) $1.25 instead of like $40. I live on campus so I only use the transportation to leave campus but I know a lot of people who use it to get to campus and they do just fine.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation is great! But personally driving around is a hassle
