1 College Freshman

Transportation: There is a shuttle bus that is supposed to take you places but doesn't do a great job about it. It mostly just transfers you to other campus related locations. Public transportation is abundant and cheap but can add a lot of time to a trip.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: we have on-campus shuttle buses that run constantly.

3 College Student

Transportation: I really wish to get me a car someday.

4 College Junior

Transportation: the transportation on campus is available to students whenever they want

3 College Junior

Transportation: The campus shuttle transportation is very convenient. The drivers are always accommodating. There is a designated area for shuttle buses. However, public transportation is terrible! There is a bus stop about a block away from campus and the metra station is 5 mins away but my university does not provide the option of a U-pass. I think it's necessary considering that the majority of students are commuters.
